Pakistani civilians suffer in South Waziristan offensive

After a series of deadly terror attacks across Pakistan, the vast majority of which were carried out by groups with roots in South Waziristan, the army commenced an offensive in the restive tribal region.

Few, if any, humanitarian preparations have been made for the 150,000 civilians who have already fled the military’s campaign against 10,000 Taliban militants.

Imran Khan of Al Jazeera English reports on the humanitarian consequences of the Pakistani military’s newest campaign.

All so call “Human Rights Watch” concentrated on Israel only. They don’t care about rest of the World. I am sure it will be 3-4 comments on this report, but on Gaza report it is about 150?? Everyone can find the answer in NY Times article “Rights Watch Dog lost in Middle East” by Robert Bernstein, Oct. 20, 2009.
