PAF airlifts over 500 tourists stranded in Gilgit to Rawalpindi

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Air Force (PAF) on Friday airlifted more than 500 tourists stranded in Gilgit and adjoining areas to Rawalpindi through C-130 jets as part of an emergency fight operation, ARY News reported.

The PAF shifted these tourists in five different flights, who upon reaching Chaklala airbase told ARY News that they were stuck in Gilgit and Chilas following landslides due to torrential rains last week.

On the occasion, PAF officials said the flight operation will continue until the last tourist trapped is not transported to a safer place.
