NORTH WAZIRISTAN: At least four people were killed when a US drone targeted a house with missiles in North Waziristan early on Friday, Express News reported.
The drone fired missile at a house located in Ghulam Khan area of North Waziristan. The attack left at least four people dead.
On August 31, a US drone killed at least four militants in a missile strike targeting a compound in the village of Heso Khel around 35 kilometres (21 miles) east of Miranshah.
The Pakistani government has repeatedly protested against drone strikes as a violation of its sovereignty and there has been a decrease in their use.
During a visit to Islamabad at the start of August, US Secretary of State John Kerry suggested that drone strikes targeting Taliban and al Qaeda operatives in Pakistan could end “very soon” as the threat of militancy recedes.
