At least 3 killed in US drone strike in Kurram Agency: report
According to local media, the drone fired two missiles reportedly hitting the house of a Taliban commander named Rashid in Ghuzgari area.
The attack was carried out at 4:30am on Thursday.
There was no immediate confirmation of the drone strike from government officials.
Earlier last month, two suspected US drone strikes hit Pak-Afghan border area in which 30 people were reportedly killed.
The military however later rejected the claims of the drone strike in Pakistani territory.
The attacks came days after a Canadian-American couple held hostage by the Taliban were freed from the area.
Haqqani network leader Abubakar and his partner were killed when a drone fired two missiles at his house in Speen Tal area of Hangu.
Following a US drone strike in Hangu, Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said that unilateral actions such as drone strikes are counterproductive and against the spirit of ongoing cooperation and intelligence sharing diligently undertaken by Pakistan.
