The armed drone Burraq was previously tested on 14th March 2015 along with its laser-guided missile.
The Pakistani Army had launched the offensive ground for militants operating in the Shawal Valley of North Waziristan. The area is a convenient smuggling ground because it provides a route between Afghanistan and Pakistan. The region was also being used as a base to launch attacks on the Pakistani soil.
