The Pakistani military fired on US helicopters as they attempted to cross the border in Pakistan’s Taliban-controlled tribal agency of North Waziristan, according to reports from the region. The latest US incursion comes just two days after a suicide bombing destroyed the Marriott Hotel in the heart of Islamabad. A little-known terror group took credit for the strike.
As usual, it’s tough to know who, if anyone, is telling the truth.
“There was no such incursion; there was no such event,” Colonel Gary Keck, a Defense Department spokesman told The Associated Press.
