According to reports, the missiles first hit a house situated in Mir Ali, in which five people, including a foreign militant, was killed. While one hour after the first attack, unmanned US drones targeted another militants compound in Shaktoi area, killing four more people.
The unmanned US plane targeted Zarniri area, which is near the spot where U.S. missiles are believed to have narrowly missed the Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud the day before.

One strike was carried out by multiple drones(five) that usually means a HVT was being hunted.

Maybe it's Hakimullah Mehsud. He's on the run or on the hobble at least.
Supposedly we missed him by " this much" the other day.
