Islamabad, 9 Sept. (AKI) - By Syed Saleem Shahzad - Top Uzbek warlords and their bases which provide training to the European fighters were killed in the last four suspected US predator drone attacks over the past 24 hours in Pakistani North Waziristan region, well placed sources told AKI.
A total of at least five people were reported killed in the latest attack on Thursday in the northwest Pakistani tribal belt.
The most prominent target in the series of drone attacks was the renowned Uzbek commander whose is renowned in the region with his Jihadi nom de guerre Qureshi.
He came under attack at 12:30 pm Wednesday in the area of Digan, the Data Khel region of the North Waziristan.
Qureshi was associated with the Islamic Jihad Union. He used to receive foreigners especially the Germans in North Waziristan and then train them and resend them to their country of origins.
At 10:30 am yesterday a drone attacked Dande Darpa Khel in the North Waziristan. The targeted compound belonged to Pakistani militants of Laskhar-e-Jhangvi and the Uzbek militants.
Another target was Laskhar-e-Jhangvi in the North Waziristan while Thursday's pre-dawn target were seven Uzbek militants at the Match manufacturing factory near Miranshah.
The US declines to publicly claim responsibility for drone missile strikes in Pakistan, but officials have said privately that they have killed several senior Taliban and Al-Qaeda militants.
America's use of unmanned aircraft in Pakistan is publicly called a violation of sovereignty by the country's government and military officials. Reports say their reaction is for local consumption and in private support such strikes.
Pakistani officials said three drone strikes killed at least 15 people in North Waziristan on Wednesday, a stronghold for Taliban and Al-Qaida-linked militants, according to a report on the web site of US-government sponsored Voice of America radio.
An attack by a suspected American drone aircraft on Thursday killed five people in northwest Pakistan accused of being militants, according to news reports.
It was the fourth such attack in 24 hours, according to a report.
Six alleged insurgents were killed on Wednesday in another attack in Pakistan's troubled northwestern area that borders Afghanistan.
Guess we put a stop to that.

Finally, some inspiring news that we are killing militant Muslims instead of burning Korans. Wouldn't want to upset them.
