U.S. Drone Strike Kills Local Qaida 'Commander' in Yemen
2017-10-06
[AnNahar] A U.S. drone killed a "commander" of al-Qaeda murderous Moslems in Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of. Except for a tiny handfull of Jews everthing there is very Islamic...
in a strike on the central province of Baida, security sources said on Thursday.

...the latest incarnation of various Qaeda and Qaeda-allied groups, including the now-defunct Aden-Abyan Islamic Army that boomed the USS Cole in 2000...
group, was traveling on a cycle of violence along with an unidentified man when the strike killed them both, the sources said.

The attack was carried out on the Yakala area, a stronghold for the jihadist group where U.S. drones have repeatedly targeted al-Qaeda members in the past few months.

The United States considers the Yemen-based AQAP to be the group's most dangerous branch.

A long-running drone war against AQAP has intensified since U.S. President Donald Trump

took office in January.

An air raid he ordered that month killed a U.S. Navy SEAL and several Yemeni civilians in Baida province, south of Marib.

AQAP has taken advantage of a war between the Saudi-backed government and Iranian catspaws to expand its presence in several areas of eastern and southern Yemen.

and its allies joined the conflict in 2015.

Seven Yemeni government soldiers were seriously maimed in a boom-mobile blast in the southern province of Abyan
...a governorate of Yemen. The region was a base to the Aden-Abyan Islamic Army terrorist group until it dropped the name and joined al-Qaeda. Its capital is Zinjibar. In March 2011, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula declared the governate an Islamic Emirate after seizing control of the region. The New York Times fastidiously reported that those in control, while Islamic hard boyz, are not in fact al-Qaeda, but something else that looks, tastes, smells, and acts the same. Yemeni government forces launched an effort to re-establish control of the region when President-for-Life Saleh was tossed and the carnage continues...
on Thursday, the security source said.

The soldiers are members of a UAE-backed force fighting against rebels in the Arabian Peninsula country.

#1  Really. These people in these articles are killed by their lifestyle / life choices. The bomb / missile / bullet / knife (we can fantasize about that last one) is just the punctuation.
