The strike consisted of two missiles that were fired at a compound in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan.

The attack comes a week after Maulvi Nazir, a top Taliban commander who targeted U.S. troops in Afghanistan, and nine of his comrades were killed in a drone strike in South Waziristan.

The identities of those killed on Thursday were not immediately known.
