Tarbela Ghazi Airbase or Ghazi Aviation Base is a Pakistan Army Aviation air base located in Haripur District of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province in North-West Pakistan. Early reports suggested that this airbase was used in the operation in which Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was killed but the Pakistani government vigorously denied it.[1]
