North Waziristan 11/06/2010

TBIJ strike ID: Ob97

At least thirteen were killed, ‘Arabs, Uzbeks and Chechens’ among them, in a strike that injured a dozen and destroyed two houses.

Circling drones ‘created panic’ among villagers following the attack. It is not clear if Sheikh Ihsanullah, Harun and Abu Ibrahim were killed in this strike or one a few hours earlier (Ob96).
