DERA ISMAIL KHAN: Two ‘commanders’ of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) were killed when an unmanned aircraft targeted a moving car in Afghanistan’s Paktika province along the border with South Waziristan Agency.

Sources said on Saturday that a US drone targeted the car in the Narr area close to the border, killing local Taliban ‘commanders’ Haroon Shuikhel Wazir and Azmat Mahsud. The former belonged to the Akhtar Mohammad group of the TTP in North Waziristan Agency.

The sources said that the attack took place at around 4pm on Friday.

The funeral prayers for the two were held in the Laman area near the border. They said that a large number of tribesmen displaced from South Waziristan, who are settled in the Laman area, attended the funeral prayers.
