Accoding to Pakistan media, "Khan Said Sajna, deputy commander of Tehrik e Taliban Pakistan along with three Haqqani network terrorists killed in USA drone attacks in Afghanistan and North Waziristan of Pakistan". The sources said the three militants who lost their lives were affiliated with Haqqani network, which is a faction of the Afghan Taliban group.

Earlier, there was confusion if the drone fired missiles inside Pakistan or Afghanistan.

They said on Friday they have also been picking up terrorists' chatter through phone intercepts in which they were talking about Sajna's killing.

The Taliban can move easily between the two countries in the often lawless border lands and are usually waved through by Pakistan security forces, according to the AAN, citing conversations with multiple current and former Taliban fighters, doctors and Afghans living in the region.

According reports, Janjua said that instead of getting engaged in a blame game, Pakistan and Afghanistan should engage in concrete cooperation.

Pakistan has previously also asked the U.S. to assist in the process of returning Afghan refugees and called upon Afghanistan to focus on "border management" and fulfill its responsibility in ensuring no crossing over the porous border.

The second strike hit a compound in Gurwek town of North Waziristan, killing seven terrorists, the three Taliban commanders said.

The border region has always been home to local and al-Qaeda linked foreign terrorists.

U.S. drone strikes in the border regions of Pakistan have picked up since U.S. President Donald Trump took office in January 2017, though they are a long way off their peak in 2010. Last month, Trump suspended about $2 billion worth of military aid to the nuclear-armed nation and accused Pakistan of giving "lies and deceit" in return for years of USA funding. Last month, the United States suspended about $2 billion assistance to Islamabad.

Pakistan has also denied repeated allegations by the U.S. that Pakistan is providing safe havens to terrorists who use the country's land to launch cross-border attacks into Afghanistan.

"There're still several drones flying here", one of the three Taliban commanders said on Friday speaking by phone from the Paktika province.
