Tens of al-Qaeda militants, 16 civilians dead in ‘US raid’ in Yemen

Tens of al-Qaeda militants, 16 civilians dead in ‘US raid’ in Yemen | Middle East Eye – Sources in the region said the raid targeted the houses of three tribal chiefs linked to al-Qaeda and that an unspecified number of civilians were also killed. But the provincial official said Apache helicopters also struck a school, mosque and a medical facility used by al-Qaeda members. Other sources spoke of US commandos taking part in the operation, but this has not been confirmed by credible sources. The three prominent tribal figures killed in the attack were identified as brothers Abdulraouf and Sultan al-Dhahab and Saif Alawai al-Jawfi, the official and other sources said. They were known for their strong links to al-Qaeda, the sources said. The Dhahab (also referred to as al-Zahab) brothers had two other al-Qaeda brothers who were also killed in the past by drone strikes. An al-Qaeda chief in the region, who was identified as foreigner Abu Barazan, was also killed in the attack, the official said.
