Islamabad: At least seven militants were killed on Thursday in a drone strike in Pakistan`s North Waziristan, media reported.

Two missiles were fired on a house at Shawal valley by a US drone, setting the house ablaze and destroyed it completely, Geo TV reported.

North Waziristan is among Pakistan`s seven tribal districts near the Afghanistan border rife with homegrown insurgents and are alleged to be strongholds of Taliban and al Qaeda operatives, among other extremist groups.

Pakistan`s military in June last year launched an operation `Zarb-i-Azb` against Taliban militants in the region which is still continuing.
