TBIJ strike ID: Ob169

A drone attack targeted  a car and possibly also a house near Datta Khel.

Four alleged militants were reportedly killed, including two white British converts described as “key commanders of the Islamic Army of Great Britain”, an al Qaeda-linked group. The car was said to be “incinerated”, and militants collected and removed the dead men’s remains.
