At least three Haqqani members including a commander were killed in a foreign forces drone strike in the Kurram tribal region near the Durand Line, the de facto border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, on Tuesday, Pakistani media reported. Two militants, including Haqqani network commander Jamiuddin, were killed, they said. Officials also said a probe has been launched. The strike occurred in the Mata Sangar area of Kurram.

Pakistan has sought to play down several recent drone strikes inside the border, with officials saying they were on the Afghan side even though local residents said they were in Pakistan.
