The U.S. military aid is meant to help Pakistan mount a long-awaited ground offensive against Taliban fighters in their South Waziristan stronghold along the border with Afghanistan, where U.S. and NATO forces are fighting a growing insurgency.
Hit by string of brazen militant attacks in the past 11 days that have killed about 150 people, Islamabad says a ground offensive by its troops is imminent.
“Each one of these attacks is troublesome,” Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said. “But the Pakistan government remains committed to addressing the threat there.”
