17 killed in drone strikes in SWA

At least 17 persons were killed and several others injured in US drone strikes in South Waziristan Agency (SWA) on Sunday. According to sources, US drones fired 10 missiles at two compounds in different localities including Bobar area of SWA agency destroying them completely.

As a result of attacks, 17 persons were killed while several others sustained wounds. Some sources claimed that a key militant commander was also among those killed in the attack. The locals stayed away from rescue activities due to lower flight of spy plane creating panic and fright among the dwellers.

The US after a period of calm regarding drone strikes has restarted targeting militants through unmanned planes and during recent days pro-government tribal leader Maulvi Nazeer was also killed in such an attack.
