Pakistan Condemns US Drone Attack on Its Soil

US Drone Attack
Pakistan condemned a US drone strike on its territory adding to the rising tensions between Washington and Islamabad.

The suspected US drone attack "targeted an Afghan refugee" camp in the Northwest of Pakistani Kurram region, Islamabad's Foreign Ministry's statement read, Sputnik reported.

The Foreign office also noted the detrimental effect which the US "unilateral actions" have on "the spirit of cooperation between the two countries in the fight against terrorism."

The reaction from Pakistan comes after two Pakistani security officials earlier confirmed that the missiles launched from what was said to be the US drone targeted a house in the village of Dapa Mamozai where two militants from the Afghan Taliban-allied Haqqani network resided.

Earlier in January, US State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert said that the United States was suspending the delivery of military equipment and security aid to Pakistan due to the local authorities’ alleged insufficient measures in the fight against terrorist groups.
