A U.S. drone attack today killed at least three Taliban militants, including a commander, in Pakistan's unruly tribal region near the Afghan border, security officials said.

If confirmed, it would be the first United States drone strike inside Pakistan since President Donald Trump outlined his new Afghanistan strategy.

The attack happened in Pakistani territory, six kilometers away from the border, in the semi-autonomous tribal area of Kurram Agency, Geo TV quoted a tribal administrator Baseer Khan as saying.

Russian submarines fire seven cruise missiles at Isis militants
The extremist group agreed to evacuate territory, for the first time, from a district on the Syria-Lebanon border on August 28. The Syrian army and its allies recently broke an Islamic State siege of an enclave in Deir al-Zor that had lasted three years.

Officials privy to the meeting said the Pakistani side maintained that terrorists were the common enemies of both countries and they should jointly take action against them.

Pak afghan border was closed after two blasts on Friday, on the border in Khyber Agency.

According to the officials, shortly after the strike residents saw suspected militants transporting slain and wounded persons to an undisclosed location.

The US-led worldwide forces in Afghanistan had no immediate information on the strike.

Ties between Washington and Islamabad have frayed in recent years amid USA counter-terrorism efforts along the Afghan-Pakistani border and the secret US raid that killed al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden.

The US is believed to have ordered at least two other drone attacks this year.
