Pakistani authorities have reportedly stopped all the US operations at Shamsi Air Base in the restive southwestern province of Balochistan.
"Yes I can confirm Shamsi air base is no more under the use of American and 150 US personnel stationed at the base have left," NBC quoted senior Pakistani military intelligence officials as saying.
The move comes just hours after two US drones fired missiles into the North Waziristan tribal region, killing 25 people including women and children.
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been using the air base to station its unmanned predator drones.'
