    The head of the Pakistan Air Force has has ordered his force to shoot down drones that enter the country's airspace including ones belonging to the U.S.

    The orders from Chief Sohail Aman are a complete turnaround from the air force's previous position in which it condemned drone strikes on its soil but had never threatened to shoot the unmanned aerial vehicles down.

    The announcement was made public about two weeks after a US drone strike targeted a militant compound in Pakistan's tribal region near the Afghan border, killing three militants, The Times Of India reported.

    'We will not allow anyone to violate our airspace.

    'I have ordered PAF to shoot down drones, including those of the US, if they enter our airspace, violating the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity,' Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman told an audience in Islamabad.

    They should not shoot them. It should be solved on table talks instead of battelefield.
