A house in the Bahramkhel village of Ismailkhel and Mandozai district of Khost province was the target of a drone strike on Tuesday early morning.
Two children were reportedly killed in the attack, while two others, including a woman and a child, were injured.
The injured people were transferred to the local hospital for medical treatment.
Shabir Ahmad Osmani, the Taliban’s director of information and culture in Khost, would not confirm the airstrike but said that a blast had occurred at a residential house and the matter is under investigation.
Locals in the Khost province reported that a drone had been hovering above the Ismailkhel and Mandozai district since Monday night and throwing a bomb on a residential house at around 3 to 4 AM on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, several media reported that since the regime change in August 2021, unknown drones have been flying in several regions of the country.
On the other hand, Pakistani officials have expressed concern about the Tahreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) hideouts across the Afghan-Pak border area, which were rejected by the Taliban authorities.
