01 December, 2017
DERA ISMAIL KHAN: A suspected US drone strike on Thursday targeted an hideout of the Haqqani network along Pakistan’s mountainous border with Afghanistan, killing four people, officials said.
If confirmed, it would be the fourth such US strike inside Pakistan since US President Donald Trump took office in January. Two Pakistani intelligence officials and a local government officer said an unmanned aerial vehicle dropped two missiles on a compound housing militants under the command of a senior network commander, Abdur Rasheed Haqqani. Villagers initially reported a blast in the Upper Kurram area to authorities, said one of the officials, adding, “We got it from our informant later that it was a US drone strike that targeted Haqqanis.”
