Pakistan's Abdul Razzaq quits Afghan T20 league after Kabul stadium attack

The writer is a former ambassador of Pakistan

Kurram Agency: A U.S. drone killed three suspected militants in an attack on a compound in Kurram Agency on Friday, officials said, in the first strike since President Donald Trump vowed to crack down on Pakistan.

"Three people - a policeman and two civilians - have been killed and five civilians sustained injuries", Interior Ministry Spokesperson Najib Danesh said.

Another Taliban member, whose name was not mentioned in the report either, said Mohib was part of the Afghan Taliban.

Asmat is a believed to be a relative of Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef, who served as ambassador to Pakistan during the Taliban's rule.

He said the "U.S. must comply with worldwide law when it comes to the use of lethal force and any potentially unlawful strikes should be independently investigated". "This is just a propaganda of the Western media".

The rare drone strike in Pakistan came weeks after U.S. President, Donald Trump, announced a new policy for Afghanistan and the broader South Asian region that alarmed Islamabad.

The CIA-run drone operation resumed in Pakistan in March after a nine month unannounced break, but there have been no confirmed strikes since June 13, according to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism which tracks the US global drone program.

The US president unveiled his administration's new strategy in Afghanistan last month. "You (enemies) should know that Afghanistan's strategic situation has changed and you (Taliban) can not win on the battlefields", he added. Pakistan has carried out several operations against militants in Kurram, but violence has persisted.

United States drone attacks inside Pakistan started in 2004. "It's not in anyone's interest for Afghanistan to remain a sink hole of violence and a safe haven for extreme terrorism", he said. Insecurity remains in the country despite the presence of foreign troops.
