Three suspected terrorists were killed while another sustained injuries in a suspected US drone strike in Kurram Agency on Friday, security officials confirmed.

According to the security officials, two missiles were fired near the Pak-Afghan border from an unmanned aerial vehicle, killing three suspects and injuring another.

In June, a drone strike had killed a commander of the deadly Haqqani network in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Hangu district.

Haqqani network leader Abubakar and his partner were killed when a drone fired two missiles at his house in Speen Tal area of Hangu.

In April, a suspected US drone strike had killed several Taliban militants in North Waziristan close to the Afghanistan border.

US drone attacks inside Pakistan have become rare over the past few years. In its last high-profile attack inside Pakistan, the United States had in May 2016 killed Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour in Balochistan.
