ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan People Party (PPP) on Monday submitted an adjournment motion in the Upper House of Parliament against the US-led drone strike conducted in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Hangu district last week which had killed at least five persons, DawnNews reported.
Senior PPP leader Raza Rabbani submitted the motion in the Senate secretariat.
Drone strikes conducted in settled areas of Pakistan are a blatant violation of international laws, the motion said adding that the issue was grave and needed immediate discussion in the Upper House.
The strike in Hangu’s Tal area was the second drone attack to take place inside Pakistan’s settled areas and reportedly claimed the life of a senior Haqqani network adviser, Ahmad Jan.
It led to a strong reaction from the Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf which leads the government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The party has demanded an end to drone strikes as well as the halting of Nato supplies from and towards Afghanistan.
