TBIJ strike ID: Ob107

An attack on the house of Shera Deen during Ramadan prayers killed 14, after militants came to join prayers.

Seven civilians, including a child, were among the dead, according to named locals. Six were members of Deen’s family. Deen survived and his account to Associated Press was corroborated by local student Safir Ullah.

‘The tribesmen were buried in a graveyard with a wooden headstone indicating they were victims of a drone attack,’ Associated Press reported. ‘The Taliban fighters were buried in a different corner of the same graveyard in an unmarked grave.’
