Claiming how the Amnesty International report on drone strikes had endorsed his stance, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairperson Imran Khan called for the strikes to be halted.
The Amnesty report holds USA responsible for causing numerous casualties in Pakistan and Yemen. Imran, in comments tweeted from the PTI account stated that drone attacks are a violation of human rights and as well as the sovereignty of Pakistan.
“Such drone strikes should be halted immediately as they are adding fuel to militancy in Pakistan.”
Imran tweeted that the “federal government should act upon the resolution of the APC to put an end to drone strikes.”
The strikes have killed as many as 2,500 people according to a UN report on drones. These include nearly 400 civilian casualties, with nearly half of them children.
