Islamabad, Sep 27: The International Security Assistance Forces(ISAF) in Afghanistan has killed more than 30 insurgents on Pakistani territory, the NATO-led force said on Sunday, Sep 26.

The raid was followed up on Saturday, Sep 25 when two Kiowa helicopters returned to the border area killing four more insurgents.

The US regularly uses drones to launch missile strikes against Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked insurgents in Pakistan's lawless tribal areas.

Washington has termed the Afghan border a global headquarters of al-Qaeda and the "most dangerous place on Earth".

The month of Sep 2010 has seen a surge in attacks, with 18 drone strikes in just 23 days in North Waziristan.
