TBIJ strike ID: Ob213

A strike hit an orchard killing several named militants. Ilyas Kashmiri was said to be among the dead, though he was also reported injured.

Pakistan insisted Kashmiri died but six weeks later reports surfaced that he was alive and in early March 2012 he was again reported alive. But in May 2012 the UN Security Council reported he was dead.
