Two suspected U.S. drones fired missiles at militant hideouts in northwest Pakistan today killing at least seven fighters, Pakistani intelligence officials said according to latest reports from Reuters News Agency. The drones stuck at the same area where the Pakistani army has been mounting an air-and-ground operation against Pakistani Taliban insurgents who last week killed 132 school children in. A while ago Pakistan had huge concerns with regards to American drone strikes which were creating problems for them.
Intelligence official said both of the latest air strikes and drone strikes took place in Pakistan’s remote North Waziristan region targeting Uzbek and Punjabi Taliban hideouts. Public opinion has changed in the recent week after the Peshawar massacre and the Pak army had started stern operation in this lawless region hunting down and killing Taliban fighters. The Pakistani Taliban enjoys refuge in both sides of the border since there is no proper check post.
