TBIJ strike ID: Ob262

An early morning strike left six alleged militants dead. It was reportedly an attack on the Haqqani network.

The strike came five days after Pakistan’s Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said: ‘We did not allow or give permission to fly drones from Pakistan. Drones are counter productive and we have discussed it thoroughly with the US administration.’
