Drone attacks undermine army ops: Abbas

ISLAMABAD: Former director general ISPR, Maj Gen (Retd) Athar Abbas has said that drone attacks dilute the impact of a successful army operation and that such strikes create hurdles in restoring administrative control in areas where military operation successfully concluded.

 

Addressing a seminar held under the auspices of Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), he said the army carried out successful operations in Swat, Bajaur, and South Waziristan but owing to drone strikes the process of putting administrative control back in place in these areas could not be brought to completion.

 

He underlined the need for a proper use of drone technology. "If the US put drones to use in consultation with Pakistan, it would produce more effective results," he observed.

 

The defence experts in their address on the occasion stressed upon evolving an international code of conduct on the use of drones.

Drone attacks infact evidently indicate Pakistni military's inability and utter weakness to deal with them.It suggests that they have zero capabilty to operate to defend their country's frontiers against the aggressors.
