An attack on the Pakistani Air Force base is a slap on the face of the country’s security, given the fact that it is infamous globally for harbouring and nurturing terrorists.

Earlier, when former Pakistan PM Imran Khan was arrested, his party supporters also attacked Mianwali airbase. His party supporters had also set an aircraft which was parked outside the airbase on fire.
