Wednesday, March 24, 2010 By Bureau report PESHAWAR: The tribesmen and militants in North Waziristan were surprised Tuesday when they saw a new type of the US spy planes in the air which were smaller in size but had a more thundering sound. “It appears the US is manufacturing new planes and testing the product on us first,” remarked a scared tribesman, Abdul Hakim Khan, in Miramshah, the principal town of North Waziristan tribal region. Abdul Hakim Khan said the new US spy planes in North Waziristan had terrified the tribesmen, particularly the militants operating in the militancy-hit tribal region. He said the new white colour drones were smaller in size. He said the new drones attracted attention of the tribesmen due to a more deafening sound compared to other drones. Abdul Hakim said that the new plane has no tail unlike the old ones. “The old drones played havoc by carrying out dozens of missile strikes in the tribal region during the past few years. The new ones could cause greater damage,” felt. A security official also confirmed that new US drones were flying over North Waziristan. Pleading anonymity, he said four new drones intruded into North Waziristan Tuesday and were said to be flying at a low altitude over the area till filing of this report. North Waziristan has been the prime target of the US spy planes this year. The drones in 2010 have carried out over 20 missile attacks in various parts of North Waziristan, killing 200 people, mostly local people. http://www.thenews.com.pk/print1.asp?id=230709 Great news, so we are going to see more US fire power demonstration in Waziristan.
