Sheikh Khalid bin Abdel Rehman, who also went by the code name Abu Zaid al-Kuwaiti, was killed in the strike near Miran Shah in North Waziristan, one of the seven districts of Pakistan's tribal region bordering Afghanistan, the officials said.
On Sunday, a suspected drone strike killed three militants in the region, intelligence officials said. Four missiles struck a hideout in the village of Tabbi in North Waziristan, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not permitted to speak to the media.
The militants' identities were not immediately announced.
