PESHAWAR: Nato helicopters on Tuesday once again violated Pakistan airspace in the FATA region.
Umar Farooq, reporting for Express 24/7 said that the helicopters had entered up to 600 metres inside Pakistan, including the areas of Borki, Kharlaki and Kurram and hovered in Pakistan airspace for 20 minutes.
Nato helicopters had earlier twice violated airspace, including one violation which led to the killing of three Pakistani security personnel. Pakistan had closed the border with Afghanistan after the incident, halting Nato supplies going through the country.
Earlier in 2008, an American jet bombed a Pakistani checkpoint in Mohmand Agency killing 11 Pakistani soldiers. The attack caused outrage across Pakistan.
