A U.S. drone aircraft has fired two missiles in Pakistan's North Waziristan region killing at least 13 suspected militants.
Intelligence officials told media privately that the missiles targeted on June 19 a house in Sokhel village, about 25 kilometers east of Miranshah, the main town of the region.
The United States has stepped up missile strikes in Pakistan's northwestern region since a Jordanian suicide bomber killed seven CIA employees at a U.S. base across the border in Afghanistan's eastern Khost Province in December.
Most of this year's attacks have been in North Waziristan.
