    Updated to include new information on strikes and casualties.
    Unmanned Predators or the more deadly Reapers launched attacks today in three separate areas of South Waziristan that are under Taliban control.
    Seven "Punjabi Taliban" terrorists, as well as Arabs, Uzbeks, and a Turk, are reported to be among those killed.

    The first strike took place at a compound in Shalam Raghzai in the Wana area of South Waziristan, according to The New York Times.
    The second strike hit a "suspected militant compound" in Wacha Dana, just seven miles outside of Wana.
    The third strike hit a vehicle in the village of Darnashtra in the Shawal area.

    Eighteen people have been reported killed in the three strikes.
    No senior Taliban or al Qaeda leaders have been reported killed at this time, but a number of foreigners are said to be among those killed.

    "Most of those killed in the drone strikes are said to be foreigners," a Pakistani intelligence official told The New York Times.
    "Their nationalities are described to be Arabs, Uzbeks and at least one Turk."

    Seven "Punjabi Taliban" were said to have been killed in one of the strikes, according to Reuters.
    The term 'Punjabi Taliban' is used to describe al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists from Pakistani groups such as the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami, and Jaish-e-Mohammed. Many leaders and members of these terror groups are known to shelter in Pakistan's tribal areas.

    Today's strikes are the first since the June 2 strike that is thought to have killed Ilyas Kashmiri, who leads al Qaeda military forces in the region and is one of three members of al Qaeda's external operations council, which is assigned to directing attacks against the US and Western allies. Kashmiri is one of the most hunted al Qaeda leaders in the Afghan-Pakistan border area. Ustadz Ahmed Farooq, the head of propaganda operations for al Qaeda in Pakistan, is also thought to be among those killed in the strike.
