Peshawar—The American planes in a third missile attack killed at least seven tribals and wounded many others in North Waziristan agency late Thursday afternoon bringing the death toll to 32 in short span of three days. 

This drone attack was conducted on the third consecutive day as on Wednesday. The predator planes killed as many as eighteen people when they targeted a house in Sararogha area, situated at the confluence of North and South Waziristan agencies, with a barrage of hell fire missiles. Likewise, the CIA operated pilotless planes had targeted a house in Miram Shah Bazaar in North Waziristan agency Tuesday morning raising the compound to ground killing at least seven inmates of the house. 

While the officials claimed many Taliban insurgents were killed in the three missile hits, the locals believe a large numberof innocent triblas also fell prey to the American adventurism this week.

Reports reaching here from North Waziristan agency say the unmanned US aircrafts or the drones targeted a compound in Razmak subdivision of North Waziristan agency some sixty kilometers south of NWA headquarters Miranshah Thursday afternoon and killed seven people on the spot. 

“The American planes in a missiles attack on Thursday fired four missiles at a house in Shawaal area that flattened the compound allegedly used by the Taliban insurgents and killed up to seven people and injuries to few others”. Official sources said adding there was no report of killing of any known personality in the fresh attack. 

The local sources said the US planes kept hovering on the skies sending a wave of harassment and anxiety among already terrified residents of the area and panic ridden locals for finding it hard to get closer to the site of the missiles hit to conduct rescue operation. 

The North and South Waziristan agencies have been the main target of the drone attacks initiated since August 2008 an over ninety percent of more than two thousands tribals killed in almost 250 drone strikes hailed from these two agencies.

Though the US administration managed to gun down few of their wanted men during this period a big majority of those falling prey to the American adventurism were the innocent tribals as admitted by even the international watchdogs.
