US Predator strike on Taliban camp kills 8 in South Waziristan

US Predator strike aircraft attacked a Taliban training camp run by Baitullah Mehsud in the mountains of South Waziristan.
A swarm of Predators fire at least six missiles at the training camp in Karwan Manza early in the morning. Eight Taliban fighters were killed during the airstrike, according to reports.
The Karwan Manza camp was featured in a Taliban propaganda video obtained by AfPax Insider. In the video, Taliban fighters are seen conducting various firing drills with assault rifles. The location of the camp is easily discerned; there is a large communications town in the background and power lines are running parallel to the camp.
The Taliban, al Qaeda, and allied terror group are known to run more than 150 train camps in Pakistan's tribal areas and in the Northwest Frontier Province.
Today's attack is the second in 24 hours. Yesterday's strike on a Taliban training camp in the village of Zangra in the Ladha region killed 12 Taliban and four al Qaeda fighters.
South Waziristan is a major focus of the US air campaign against al Qaeda and the Taliban. Of the 28 US strikes carried out in Pakistan this year, 20 of them took place in South Waziristan.
Baitullah Mehsud's territory has been hit 12 times and Mullah Nazir's areas have been hit eight times. Both Nazir and Baitullah host al Qaeda training camps and shelter senior leaders of the terror group. Seven of the last nine attacks have targeted Baitullah's camps and safe houses.
The US is well on its way to exceeding last year's total of 36 airstrikes in Pakistan.
