TBIJ strike ID: Ob350

A drone strike on a house in Azam Warsak killed 4-7 alleged militants.

The strike reportedly killed Abdullah Haqqani, a senior member of the Haqqani Network, was reportedly killed. He “was responsible for sending suicide bombers to Afghanistan,” according to an official.

Four more of the dead were named though their affiliation was not clear. Adil, a Yemeni; Abu Dawooduddin, from Sudan; and Umar and Amadi, from Saudi Arabia, were all reportedly members of the Haqqani Network. However this seems unusual as the Haqqani Network is built around a core of ethnic Pashtuns from the Zadran tribe. It is conceivable that the Haqqani Network was hosting the dead Arabs.

It was the 350th drone strike under President Obama and the 401st overall. The strike hit around 15 miles (24km) from the South Waziristan capital Wana.
