The U.S. conducted its first drone attack into Pakistan since the November airstrikes by U.S. forces that killed two dozen Pakistani troops on the border of Afghan. The missile attack killed four militants, and according to Pakistani intelligence, three were Arabs.

Relations with Pakistan remain strained as their military remains steadfast with the claim American forces purposely attacked and killed 24 Pakistani soldiers. This caused Islamabad to close vital supply routes into Afghanistan and force the U.S. to leave the base used to service drones that targeted militants in the tribal regions close to Afghanistan.

Although the Pakistani military say it was “short on facts”, a US military report concluded both sides had made mistakes during the incident. The report blamed poor information and insufficient co-ordination between US and Pakistani forces on the ground.
