Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said a large scale military operation along with revenge attacks will increase chaos, militancy and terrorism.
Khan said if the government wanted to launch an operation in North Waziristan it should take the people into confidence.
According to the PTI chairman, civilians especially women and children had become the target of drone strikes and military action would increase the suffering of people in the tribal region.
“We cannot regard our women and children of FATA with the callousness that is presently being displayed towards them by the state.”
Khan reminded that since FATA is directly under the president, it is beyond understanding that why he remains silent on the plight of the people of FATA.
The PTI chairman demanded the president act to alleviate the suffering of the women and children especially by providing immediate food supplies and medical assistance as well as protection against military action.
Imran Khan also demanded the government to inform the nation if it intends to start a military operation in North Waziristan.
He also condemned attack against military personnel in NWA which led to the martyrdom of five soldiers.
Imran Khan said if the military had intended to respond with an attack, it should have cleared the area of women and children at least before they bombed Mir Ali through helicopter gunships and artillery.
He said civilians, especially women and children had been innocent victims of missile strikes and now military action was causing more suffering on these innocent victims of a war they are not responsible for.
