US Strike Kills Haqqani Network Commander in Pakistan
« on: June 14, 2017, 01:55:26 AM »

A suspected U.S. drone strike reportedly killed a key Haqqani network commander in a remote Pakistani tribal district, according to Pakistani security officials.

The attack Monday night, which has not been confirmed by the Pentagon, targeted a leader of the terror group, identified as Abubakar.

Behram Khan, a resident of Dewal village in the Speen Tal area of the Hangu district, told Radio Liberty that three others were wounded in the strike, including a boy.

Abubakar, whose original name was Omar, hailed from Afghanistan's southeastern Khost province, the birthplace of network founder Jalaluddin Haqqani, according to Afghan and Pakistani intelligence reports.

Khan said the slain commander moved to Dewal from Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal district after the Pakistani military launched a counterterrorist operation there in 2014.
