ISLAMABAD, Nov 30: The Inter-Services Public Relations released on Wednesday a video footage showing the two Pakistani posts destroyed in strikes carried out by Nato helicopters and a warplane on Saturday.

Twenty-four troops, including two officers of Pakistan Army, were killed and 13 others injured during the attack on the Volcano and Boulder posts in Salala area of Mohmand Agency.

The footage showed aerial views of the posts set up in a difficult terrain 800 metres high in mountains. White smoke could be seen spiralling from large swathes of blackened ground on either side of the remote rocky mountaintop where the posts were situated.

Army spokesman Brigadier Syed Azmat Ali said the smoke was a result of the nearly two-hour incident in the early hours of Saturday. The footage was filmed on Sunday morning, he said.

Scattered sandbags, tarpaulin sheets and corrugated iron sheets can be seen lying around one of the abandoned posts, and soldiers wander through the wreckage, one taking photographs.

In another shot a stone hut can be seen, metres from the remains of a rock wall, next to which magazines of ammunition have been abandoned.—APP/AFP
