US suspected drone kills five persons in Shabwa

A US suspected drone targeted two vehicles in which al-Qaida-linked militants were traveling in al-Saeed district of Shabwa governorate, killing five al-Qaeda suspects, local sources affirmed.

 

The sources said that an Egypt national and another leader of Al-Qaeda in Azan area were among the killed.

 

The Yemeni authorities say they sometimes allow to use US drones to attack hideouts and operatives of al-Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula seen by Washington among the most dangerous branches of al-Qaeda.


The Yemeni army that engages in wide-range war with al-Qaeda managed to kill dozens of militants and arrested more others in Abyan, Shabwah, Aden and other governorates during the past months.

 

Though Al-Qaeda militants including senior leaders have been targeted by US drones in Yemeni southern and southeastern regions, US drones sometimes miss its target and kill civilians, tribal sources say.

Yemen's Parliament had summoned the Interior Minister Abdul-Kader Qahtan to ask him about US drone attacks that killed about thirteen persons including two women on Saturday in Rada town of Al-Baidha governorate.


In a session held last, members of parliament demanded to investigate US drone strikes that targeted "innocent persons" under pretexts of fighting al-Qaeda.

A lawmaker, Sadeq Al-Basha, strongly criticized the attitude of the Yemeni government toward the drone strikes, affirming that extrajudicial killing is prohibited in all laws and legislations.


However, President Abdu Rabo Mansour Hadi, who is in a Western trip, said Saturday that he personally approves every U.S. drone strike in his country and described the remotely piloted aircraft as a technical marvel that has helped reverse al-Qaeda’s gains.
