ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday condemned a US drone strike which killed at least five suspected militants in Shawal area of North Waziristan.
A drone had fired two missiles at a compound in Karwanda area of Datta Khel Tehsil in North Waziristan, just 2.5 kms from the Pakistan-Afghanistan border on Tuesday. The strike left at least five suspected militants dead.
“Pakistan condemns such strikes which are in disregard of our territorial sovereignty and international law,” a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson said.
“These strikes also generate distrust among the local populace. We reiterate our call for cessation of such strikes,” it added.
