Unknown enemy kills foreign militants in Pakistan.


news.yahoo.com

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan - An explosion possibly caused by a missile strike killed five suspected foreign militants near the Afghan border on Friday, Pakistani officials said.

The blast occurred in a village in the North Waziristan region, part of Pakistan's wild tribal belt that serves as a base for Taliban militants and fugitive al-Qaida leaders.

U.S. commanders who blame those sanctuaries for rising violence in neighboring Afghanistan appear to be stepping up their efforts to hit militants inside Pakistan.

Two intelligence officials, citing local informers, told The Associated Press that drone aircraft were seen above the village of Gurwak before Friday's blast and that they believed the aircraft had fired missiles.

The officials, who asked for anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly, said five suspected foreign militants were killed and several other people were injured. They provided no other details of the victims' identity.

Army spokesman Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas confirmed the explosion and said the military had sent a team to investigate what had happened.

Man, the foreign fighters are making more and more enemies everyday. I wonder who fired a missile at them in Pakistan. India perhaps? It wouldn't surprise me one bit.

My money is on the US. They don't give a rat's ass about sovereignty.

Indeed, it's incredibly hard, if not impossible to know who launched that attack using UAV's...



... I think we'll never know.



Yep... might as well give up the investigation now. Cause I can't think of anyone who currently uses UAV's to launch attacks, and is currently engaged in warfare in that region, and has already violated the Pakistani border recently...



... Absolutely puzzling.

The U.S. ain't the only country using UAVs. Not to mention that America is not the only enemy the Islamic fighters are fighting in that region. India also has been targeted by Islamic fighters.

The U.S. just bombed a village a week or so ago in Pakistan.

My money is also on the U.S.
