New drone strike kills 5 in North Waziristan – The Express Tribune
MIRANSHAH: A fresh drone strike killed five people in North Waziristan on Friday, Express News reported.
Two missiles were fired on a house in Danda Darpakhel Miranshah, causing a fiery explosion that took several lives.
Casualties are expected to rise further.
This is the second drone attack in two days, after Thursday's strike killed three people in Miranshah bazaar.
The attack comes against the backdrop of a political scenario rife with fresh tensions and controversies over the Pakistani state's role in these US attacks.
Hours after Thursday's drone attack, an agitated Imran Khan had stated that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) would put a stop to NATO supplies if a drone attack is conducted during the Taliban peace talks.
A day earlier, US Congressman Alan Grayson had said that if Pakistan wanted, drone strikes "could end tomorrow", indicating that the strikes could not occur without Pakistan's approval.
