Rockets hit NATO truck depot in Peshawar, PakistanPESHAWAR: Unidentified men on Wednesday fired three rockets that hit a terminal for trucks carrying supplies to NATO and United States troops in Afghanistan.
Neither of the rockets caused serious damage or any injuries, police officer Abdul Qadirwhich said.
Qadir said officers were not sure whether the truck terminal was the target of the attack. The rockets are normally fired into the city from hills on its outskirts some 10 kilometres away, AP reported.
Up to 75 percent of the supplies for Western forces in landlocked Afghanistan pass through Pakistan. Peshawar is a key stop for convoys en route to the Khyber Pass and on to Western Afghanistan.
Anyone who dreams this mess is not going to engulf Pakistan and cause chaos in a nuclear power is dreaming. Pakistan is Al Qaeda, the Taliban and the salafi/deobandi freaks shortcut to caliphate, and by result, world war.
Earlier this month, suspected Taliban hijacked several trucks near the Khyber Pass whose load included Humvees heading to the US-led coalition. Pakistan halted traffic along the road for several days while it arranged for armed troops to guard the slow-moving convoys. In a sign of its frustration, Washington has carried out a surge of missile attacks in the lawless area since August, killing dozens of militants but angering Pakistan's young government and many of its 170 million people.
