DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan—Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. drone fired missiles at two compounds in the North Waziristan tribal region, killing at least seven alleged militants.

Four intelligence officials say the early Friday strikes hit the compounds of the Punjabi Taliban and Uzbek militants in Shawal area of North Waziristan.

They say two missiles each hit the compound of Punjabi Taliban in Kund village, killing four, and the compound of Uzbek militants in Mangrotai village, killing three Uzbeks.

All the intelligence officials spoke anonymously because they aren’t authorized to speak to media.

Drone strikes are largely unpopular in Pakistan where many consider them a violation of the country’s sovereignty. The U.S. insists, however, these attacks are effective to eliminate militants in areas inaccessible to the Pakistani military.
