PESHAWAR: The Nato supply through Pak-Afghan border of Torkham lay suspended for five days now, Geo News reported Monday.
According to the sources of Torkham border, the containers packed with Nato supplies are not being allowed to cross the border; their clearance is hitherto suspended, as around 200 Nato containers are standing in the area to cross the border into Afghanistan.
It should be mentioned here that Pakistan suspended the supply line after the martyrdom of Pak security forces in the incident of shelling from helicopters of the allied forces, which violated the country’s airspace.
A high-level team of Pak Army was sent to Afghanistan for probe into the violations of Pakistani airspace by Nato forces. The Pak team is probing the incident in sync with Nato officials.
Meantime, the incidents of attacks on Nato containers are on the rise in Pakistan.
Some days back, the Nato oil containers were attacked in Shikarpur, where several oil tankers were destroyed. Nato supply oil tankers were attacked in Islamabad during Monday night.
Pakistan held these attacks as the public reaction.
Talking to a British news agency, the Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said Pakistani people are quite infuriated at the violations of airspace and attacks, adding the supply line would be restored only after the people are pacified and the supply line is secured.
