U.S drone strikes al-Qaeda vehicles in Aden

 Yemen Post Staff

The British Broadcast Company (BBC) reported citing military sources in Yemen that a US drone on Monday morning targeted two vehicles belonging to the al-Qaeda-linked militants in the southern port city of Aden.Yemen Post could not independently verify the strikes.
The sources said that the drone attack left some militants killed and others injured as they were traveling in the cars coming from the neighboring Abyan province of which the militants have been driven out by the armed and security forces early this month.They, however, did not pinpoint how many of al-Qaeda operatives were killed in the drone. They expected a senior leader in the terror organization to be among the dead but refused to mention his name, said the international news agency.The US drones triggered controversy in the country with some analysts arguing that the drones might have helped more people to join al-Qaeda after losing innocent relatives who were killed mistakenly by drones.However, Washington has repeatedly stressed the importance of the drones, saying that they helped US kill terrorists whom otherwise the world biggest power would have been unable to get rid of.Last year, a US drone attack has assassinated the infamous American-Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was placed on the top of American wanted list as he was accused of having directly planned attacks against US interests including the Detroit-bound airliner plot which had been foiled.
