Islamabad: Lawmakers in Pakistan's Balochistan province Monday accused NATO jets of violating Pakistani airspace and demanded that the government halt the intrusions.

Provincial minister Engineer Zamruk Khan told the assembly that the NATO planes crossed into Pakistani territory in Qila Abdullah, a district bordering Afghanistan, reported Xinhua.

Khan, who belongs to the Pashtoon nationalist Awami National Party (ANP), raised the issue during the session.

He said NATO forces violated the Pakistani airspace with a 20-minute low flight in the area two days ago. He asked the federal government to raise the issue with NATO officials and the U.S.

"This is creating fear and panic among the people living in the bordering district," Khan told the house.

"People are assuming these airspace violations as an indication from Nato forces that they will soon launch an airstrike."

Low-flying jets over Pakistani areas caused panic in the border areas.
