The US has struck again inside Pakistan's lawless tribal areas. The latest airstrike targeted a key al Qaeda facilitator who served as a bridge between the Taliban and al Qaeda. The US is also stating that al Qaeda operative Khalid Habib was killed in last week's strike in South Waziristan.
Today's strike in the town of Mir Ali killed an estimated 15 to 20 people, according to reports. Pakistani intelligence sources claim al Qaeda operative Abu Kasha was killed in the attack. The reports have not been confirmed.
Our last strike killed around twenty Pakistanis, including allegedly some civilians. We'll see what the Pakistanis think of this attack.
