A suspected UAV strike on Thursday in northwest Pakistan may have killed as many as five high-ranking members of terrorist groups.
According to media reports, the strike on Thursday killed two senior leaders of the Haqqani network and three senior Taliban leaders. The strike occurred outside the tribal areas in Pakistan.
The attack was the third in Pakistan that had taken out high-ranking terrorists. On 1 November, the leader of the Pakistani Taliban was killed by a suspected UAV strike, while earlier in November, a key figure in the Haqqani network was killed by gunmen who attacked on a motorcycle.
