BANNU: For half a million Pakistanis displaced by a military offensive, the prospect of fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramazan amid severe food shortages has sharpened anger towards the government.

The military began long-anticipated strikes on the North Waziristan tribal district in mid-June, hoping for a swift victory over a resurgent Taliban enemy in the aftermath of a bloody attack on the country’s busiest airport in Karachi.Far from the comforts of home in their cool mountainous district, many displaced people are facing up to life in tent villages a few kilometres east of the region’s border.Temperatures approach 50C (122F) and riots frequently break out over the lack of food supplies.At a food distribution point in the town of Bannu, Niaz Wali Khan, a 55-year-old pharmacy owner, told AFP he had been queuing for four days but was turned away without rations each time.“We are depressed,” said Khan.“They have launched this operation just before the Holy Month, but these militants were living here for years.
