Mortar shells were also being fired from the fort and Amin post which fell into the residential areas.
This state of affairs came to the fore in a time when on one side operation in North Waziristan is a hot issue in national and international media after the attack over Malala and her fellow girls while on the other hand news of a joint meeting of president and the premier are also in the air.
Though there are not anything clear about the operation in NWA but the recent development in Miranshah testifies that the situation is sleeping slowly and gradually towards operation.
Keeping in view past experiences it is not difficult to feel that in the past too, before operation, same kind of incidents used to happen and then a full fledge operation would launched.
After the Friday’s incident, the security forces imposed curfew in the whole of Waziristan and nobody was allowed to go near the main road.
If the situation remains the same and things getting worsened, than people of North Waziristan should get ready for a military strike.
It also merits mentioning here that there is a peace treaty in North Waziristan between the local Taliban and the government and a peace committee is properly working as a bridge whenever situation is abnormal due to some kind of incidents like the one mentioned above.
But for how long the peace committee would play the role of mediator to keep things in its original position?
It is a big question and only people at the helm of affairs can answer it.( continued)part III
