(LWJ) — US Predators struck again today in Pakistan’s Taliban-controlled tribal agency of North Waziristan, killing four more “militants,” according to reports from the region.
The unmanned, CIA-operated Predators or Reapers fired a pair of missiles at a vehicle in the village of Norak in the Mir Ali area.
“A guest house of a local tribal elder was also destroyed in the attack. However, it was not immediately known if there was anybody inside the guest house at the time of the attack,” a Pakistani tribal elder told AFP.
The Mir Ali area is in the sphere of influence of Abu Kasha al Iraqi, an al Qaeda leader who serves as a key link to the Taliban and supports al Qaeda’s external operations network. Taliban leader Hafiz Gul Bahadar and the Haqqani Network also operate in the Mir Ali area. Moreover, Mir Ali is a known hub for al Qaeda’s military and external operations councils.
