ISLAMABAD: In an attack on Kamra airbase, an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) plane was destroyed, while ten attackers were also killed, the National Assembly Standing Committee on Defence was told on Wednesday.
It was informed that defence installations have been attacked 16 times in the country since 2009. The meeting of the standing committee was chaired by Azra Fazal Pechuho. Defence Secretary Lieutenant General (retired) Asif Yasin Malik informed the committee that the defence installations saw their last attacks in Peshawar and the Kamra airbase.
He said that in the attack on the Kamra airbase an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) plane was destroyed. The terrorists attacked Peshawar Air Base from all four sides, but fortunately all the defence installations remained safe, Malik said. He said after back-to-back attacks, army personnel have been deployed at all defence facilities of the country. He said intelligence officials who supported the terrorists had also been charged.
