Sunday’s drone strikes came just hours after four militant hideouts and a suicide bomber training center were also destroyed in Pakistani airstrikes, late on Saturday in the Tirrah valley of the Khyber region, according to an army statement.

The Tribune reports that on Monday Pakistan condemned Sunday’s drone strike.
