PESHAWAR: Pakistan for the first time on Monday used an indigenous drone to attack a terrorist compound in restive North Waziristan, killing at least three high-profile militants.

“The first-ever use of Pakistan made Burraq drone today hit a terrorist compound in Shawal Valley killing three high profile terrorists,” Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

The remotely-piloted aircraft ‘Burraq’ and laser-guided missile ‘Burq’ were tested on March 14, taking Pakistan a step closer to acquiring the technology it has long demanded from the US.

The deeply forested ravines of Shawal Valley and Datta Khel are popular smuggling routes between Pakistan and neighbouring Afghanistan and are dotted with militant bases, media reported.
