Islamabad, September 30 (RHC)-- Pakistan has strongly condemned the latest U.S. assassination drone attack that killed four people in the tribal region of North Waziristan. The Pakistani Foriegh Ministry issued a statement on Monday which was that the airstrike was "a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty and territorial integrity," calling for an "immediate end" to the attacks.
U.S. killer drones regularly target North Waziristan, which is located near the Afghan border. The pilotless drones have targeted the tribal region twice over the past 24 hours.
Last Friday, September 27th, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif sought an immediate halt to the strikes during his speech at the 68th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
Washington claims its drone strikes target militants, although casualty figures show that Pakistani civilians often fall victim to the attacks. The killing of Pakistani civilians, including women and children, has strained relations between Islamabad and Washington. The strikes have also triggered massive protests in Pakistan.
