Islamabad, Thu, 06 Dec 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Dec. 6 (Xinhua-ANI): At least four people were killed in a U.S. drone strike launched in Pakistan's northwest tribal area of North Waziristan on early Thursday morning, reported local media Ary.

According to the local media reports, the strike took place at pre-dawn time when U.S. unmanned aircraft fired two missiles at a house suspected of being a militant hideout in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan, a militancy-hit area bordering Afghanistan.

The identities of the killed are not immediately available.

On Dec. 1, the U.S. drones launched a strike in South Waziristan, the neighboring tribal area of North Waizirstan, killing at least four people including an al-Qaeda leader named Abdul Rehman Azman, a Yemeni national believed to be one of the close aides of the former al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.

Thursday's U.S. drone strike is the 37th of its kind (counted on daily basis) in Pakistan in 2012. According to Xinhua's tally, at least 265 people have been killed in such strikes since this year.

Despite the repeated protests by the Pakistani side, the United States has never halted its drone strikes in Pakistan, which has caused a strong anti-Amercian sentiment among the local people. (Xinhua-ANI)
