NORTH WAZIRISTAN – It is being reported that a drone targeted a house in Shawal near Pak-Afghan border, killing several miscreants.
According to the sources, the US drone targeted a house with hell fire missiles, killing 7 including Afghan Taliban.
It is to be mentioned here that nearly sixty percent of Americans approve of drone strikes that target extremists in Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen despite concerns that they endanger innocent civilians, according to a new poll.
The Pew Research Center said its national survey showed that 58 per cent approve of US drone strikes against extremists in those countries and that 35 per cent disapprove.
Human rights groups and some lawmakers question the legality and the morality of the drone war, citing estimates that hundreds of civilians may have been killed by the strikes.
The survey was carried out between May 12-18 based on telephone interviews with around 2,000 adults living in all 50 US states and the capital Washington.
