Lieutenant Syed Yaser Abbas Nominated for Nishan-e-Haider (نشان حیدر ) by PM Gilani

Lieutenant Syed Yaser Abbas was on phone when he heard the news of terrorists attack on the PNS Mehran Naval Base. Terrorists with their sophisticated assault weapons and night vision googles were able to evade the surveillance cameras and entered the base by cutting the barb wire fence.

They went straight for their planned target, Pakistan Naval Aviation’s P-3C Orian aircrafts. They fired their RPGs at this big four-engine aircraft and one of them was able to hit directly to the aircraft which set the aircraft on fire.

This fire led to the destruction of another P-3C which was in close proximity of the burning aircraft. Blasts of RPG hitting the aircraft and the explosions of its fuel tank were heard in many parts of the Karachi.


Lieutenant Syed Yaser Abbas was leader of the Rapid Response Force at the base and immediately responded to the alarm and rushed to the scene with his team members. Syed Yaser Abbas’s Rapid Response Team arrived at the scene within three minutes of start of attack and confronted the terrorists.

He along with his Rapid Response Team started the counter-attack to push the terrorists out of the Naval Base and managed to secure hanger full of expensive aircraft including additional P-3Cs, Helicopters and 17 foreigners which included six Americans and 11 Chinese present at the base before being killed in the line of fire.

Yaser’s friends say that this is what he always prayed for, being a martyr was his goal and he achieved it in flying colors. His friends say that he was greatly inspired by legendry act of the Rashid Minhaas *Shaheed* who knowingly that he would die destroyed his aircraft to avoid it being taken to India by rouge instructor.
