Will not succeed in Afghanistan without Pak support

Will not succeed in Afghanistan without Pak support

A suspected us drone strike struck a compound in a northwestern tribal region along the Afghan border on Friday, killing three suspected militants and wounding two others, an army officer and two security officials said.

The US-led worldwide forces in Afghanistan had no immediate information on the strike.

Officials said three people were killed and 12 wounded in the blast on Wednesday outside the Alokozay Kabul International Cricket Ground.

Quoting local sources, Urdu TV channel ARY said that Mohib belonged to Haqqani network, however, Express TV channel contradicted the statement, saying that he was associated with Afghan Taliban group.

Sources tell VOA that missiles fired from an unmanned aircraft destroyed a house in sem-iautonomous Kurram tribal district, which borders the Afghan province of Khost. "Previously we were waiting to talk with Pakistan equally, but now we hold talks with Pakistan with an honour and we preserve our interests in these talks", Afghan media reported.

U.S. drone attacks inside Pakistan have become infrequent over the past few years.

The last high-profile target of a drone attack in Pakistan was Afghan Taliban leader, Mullah Akhtar Mansour, in 2016.

Pakistan's relations with Afghanistan have not been smooth ever since Pakistan had accused Afghanist of the string of bombings in the country that resulted in more than 130 deaths in the month of Feburary, earlier this year.

Pakistan considers the drone strike a violation of sovereignty, while the USA accuses Pakistan of providing safe havens for militants.
