Karachi, Nov.7 (ANI): Pakistan Intelligence agencies have issued warnings regarding a probable terror attack on the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) base in Karachi.

According to a communiqué issued by the Intelligence agencies, the terrorists are planning to target PAF's base in Masroor as well as the NATO containers parked nearby the base.

"It has reliably been learnt that a week earlier - suspicious individuals - young bearded men - boarding two grey Land Cruisers were noticed near the damaged Shershah bridge close to the Shell Petrol Pump, Hub River Road. The individuals were spotted watching the damaged wall of PAF Base Masroor. It appeared that the suspected terrorists were carrying out reconnaissance of the area," The Nation quoted the statement, as saying.

The communiqué also warned the agencies that no proper security arrangements have been taken to safeguard the strategically important installation.

"Eastern side of PAF Base Masroor is completely unattended, covered with scattered seasonal bushes and the lower portion of the boundary wall is open," it said.

It added that in the wake of the current situation, where the extremists have particularly targeted security installations, the threat to the PAF base and NATO supply parking should not be taken lightly and every step must be taken to safeguard these establishments. (ANI)
