‘Kashmiri militant’ killed in NWA drone strike

Kashmiri militant leader ‘Engineer’ Ahsan Aziz was among those killed in a US drone strike in the restive North Waziristan tribal region last week, media reports quoted his father as saying on Thursday. Abdul Aziz, a former militant commander, was quoted by Geo News as saying that his son Ahsan Aziz was killed along with his wife in a US drone strike in North Waziristan Agency on August 18. Aziz said his son had moved with his wife to Waziristan in 2002 to participate in the jihad in Afghanistan.
Funeral prayers in absentia for Ahsan Aziz and his wife were offered at the cricket stadium in Mirpur in Azad Kashmir, according to the reports. The prayers, led by former Jamaat-e-Islami chief Qazi Hussain Ahmed, were attended by Hizb-ul-Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin and leaders of the Hurriyat Conference and Jamaat-e-Islami. Six militants were killed when a CIA-operated drone targeted a compound and a vehicle in Shawal area of North Waziristan on August 18. At the time, security officials had told the media that the drone had targeted a militant hideout where supporters of Taliban commander Hafiz Gul Bahadur had gathered.

    I feel bad for the wife of this killer…these extremists think they can perform jihad all day and quietly go home to the family at night…if you want to be involved in war and bring your family to the war zone they may become targets..
