According to the security officials, two missiles were fired near the Pak-Afghan border from an unmanned aerial vehicle, killing three suspects and injuring another.

In June, a drone strike had killed a commander of the deadly Haqqani network in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Hangu district.

US drone attacks inside Pakistan have become rare over the past few years. In its last high-profile attack inside Pakistan, the United States had in May 2016 killed Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour in Balochistan.
