According to security sources, a United States spy drone bombed the hideout of an Afghan Taliban commander Maulana Asmatullah Zaeef, killing the commander, his son-in-law and his nephew, in upper Kurram Agency area, Ghaz Ghari, near Pakistan-Afhganistan border, reported Dunya News.

"Three people - a policeman and two civilians - have been killed and five civilians sustained injuries", Interior Ministry Spokesperson Najib Danesh said.

The officials said apparently Afghan Taliban, including member Abdul Salam, were targeted but it was unclear whether they were present at the time. "We don't differentiate the Haqqani network and Taliban".

Security officials quoted by TOLONews said a suicide bomber detonated his explosives at a check post leading to the Kabul International Cricket Stadium during a Shpageeza Cricket League match. "This is just a propaganda of the Western media", he said.

In the meantime, the pressures on the rise on Islamabad by Washington in the aftermath of the new USA strategy regarding the terror sanctuaries.

If confirmed, it would be the first US drone strike inside Pakistan since US President Donald Trump outlined a new Afghanistan strategy and pushed Islamabad to take greater action against the Haqqani network.

USA officials have urged the neighboring Pakistani government to crack down on Haqqani militants operating in Pakistan.

Another option being weighed by Washington, according to U.S. officials, is targeted sanctions against Pakistani officials with links to extremist groups such as Haqqani.

He said these countries have an enormous stake in the stability and relative security of Afghanistan.
