According the Al Jazeera, at least 6 “suspected militants have been killed by a US drone strike in the North Waziristan tribal area of Pakistan.

Today’s strike is the 4th US strike in the country in recent months, occurring after a 6 month moratorium that ended on June 12th, when 13 people were killed.

North Waziristan is reportedly home to large amounts of terrorists, and the ongoing conflict in the region has displaced close to 1,000,000 people since its beginning.
