ESHAWAR - At least 17 people were killed when US multiple drones rained down missiles on North Waziristan, considered a safe haven for many militants including groups determined to push the US and Nato out of Afghanistan.
In the deadliest attack on Thursday evening, at least 15 people including seven foreigners were killed and several others injured when five US drones fired ten missiles on the suspected base of Taliban militants in Ambor Shaga and Degan area of the North Waziristan Agency.
Sources said the attack was the second of its kind in a day as the morning attack had also claimed two lives.
According to details, US drones targeted houses of tribesmen and when people gathered at the site, four more drones fired nine more missiles, which resulted in huge casualties.
So far, neither the US nor Nato forces camping across the border or Pakistani authorities have issued any statement regarding missile strikes.
However, local sources in Miranshah have confirmed the attack. It is believed that one of the important commanders of Al-Qaeda was also killed in the attack.
Agencies add: The officials said the second strike was the bloodiest attack.
It was not clear which groups were targeted, with North Waziristan rife with Taliban militants, Al-Qaeda fighters and members of the Haqqani network, a powerful group known for staging attacks on foreign troops in Afghanistan.
In the deadliest attack on Thursday evening, multiple drones launched an onslaught in the evening on several houses Ambor Shaga area, about 30km west of the main district town Miranshah.
The dead included up to seven Arabs and one was a well-known Al-Qaeda commander named Zuhaib al-Zahibi, according to an intelligence official in Miranshah.
The nationalities of those foreigners, who were killed in the deadly strikes, could not be immediately established, the officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to media.

Good shot but you would think did the aim one missle per person or are the terrorist so afraid of drones that they have to stand 50 feet away from each other

That's a lot of missiles to get 17 people, but talk about a major butt kicking having all of that coming down on you.

Sounds like they hit a terrorist base, indicating firing on separate structures...
