MIRAMSHAH: US missiles struck an insurgent training camp in Pakistans tribal district of North Waziristan on Wednesday, killing 16 militants close to the Afghan border, local security officials said.
The strike took place at the village of Zoynarai in the Shawal area close to the border at around 12.00pm (0700 GMT), the Pakistani officials said.
In North Waziristan US drones fired five missiles at a militant training camp, killing 16 militants, a senior security official told AFP.
Another security official confirmed the attack and death toll.
Wednesdays strike came two days after US missiles killed 18 militants in neighbouring South Waziristan in the deadliest strikes for months.
Personally I think we should aim some into special targets in Mexico.
A little kinetic action down Mexico way?
Given the fact that the Pakistani civilians who have come under the US drone attacks have been afflicted with different skin, optic and respiratory diseases, it can be concluded that Washington is using chemical weapons in its attacks in Pakistan, the physicians said.
"Since the missiles launched by the US drones contain dangerous chemical substances, a large number of the injured people in these attacks cannot be declared as dead or alive since they have been afflicted with complicated diseases due to the deadly chemical materials used in the missiles," a Pakistani physician, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told FNA.
Another physician in one of the biggest hospitals in Peshawar also lamented that there is no complete information about the patients injured in the US drone attacks and transferred to the state hospitals in different cities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
If I was living near the border I would be making my own missiles, after watching Mythbusters for many years I have seen all kinds of rockets.
I think our next elected POTUS may have to seriously consider across the border police actions or a formal declaration of war, enough of this crap on the other side of the planet.
Or here in Islamberg, NY?
I had read that the training camp in Islamberg is now devoid of most of the young men who left for Jihad. Is this true?
