“US drones kill 5 AQAP operatives in Yemen”

April 17, 2013
SNIPPET: “The US launched a pair of drone strikes against al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula today in a remote area in central Yemen, according to reports. The strikes are the first recorded in the country since the end of January.
The remotely piloted Predators or the more deadly Reapers attacked two separate targets in the Oussab al Ali area, which was described by The Associated Press as a mountainous region “located in the middle of three provinces of central Damar, southern Ibb and eastern Hodeida.”
The first strike killed four AQAP fighters as they were driving a vehicle in the area, Yemeni intelligence officials told AP.
The second strike killed Hamed Radman, who was described as an “influential al Qaeda member” who “played a role in recruitment.” A Yemeni witness in the area said that US drones were deployed over the village where Radman was killed for three days before striking.
Today’s strikes are the first reported in Yemen since Jan. 23, when six AQAP fighters were killed in an attack in Sana’a province. The US launched four other strikes in Yemen in January. Two such attacks took place in Marib province on Jan. 19 and Jan. 21; two Saudis are reported to have been killed in the Jan. 19 attack. In another strike, on Jan. 22, the US killed four AQAP fighters in a strike on a vehicle in Al Jawf province in northern Yemen. And, on Jan. 3, a strike in Al Baydah province killed a local AQAP commander and two fighters.”
