Its not over. And as long as these US Government strikes continue, the violence will not end.
The attack, which consisted of two fired missiles, was in the Baber Ghar area of the South Waziristan tribal district on the Afghan border, a stronghold of Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked militants.
The attack was confirmed by another official, who also spoke to AFP, saying the drone targeted a base of Pakistan's umbrella Taliban faction, Tehreek-e-Taliban.
The covert strikes are publicly criticized by the Pakistani government as a violation of sovereignty but American officials believe they are a vital weapon in the war against Islamist militants.
A witness in a nearby village said he saw columns of smoke rising into the sky after two explosions rocked the area. He said that US drones have been flying over his village for three days and are still in the sky.
