Massive attack on al-Qaeda being carried out

  • The Yemen drone strike that killed more than nine suspected al-Qaeda members may have only been the tip of the iceberg. A Yemeni official revealed that a "massive" campaign against the terrorist network in the Arabian Peninsula is on its way. Commandos in the region seem to be involved as well and over 30 militants have reportedly been killed after a recent airstrike took out at least 12. 

    The AP reports that another strike may have taken out more militants this morning but officials in Yemen said it's not true. "I'm worried this is an attempt to convince Yemenis that the US and Yemen have turned a corner and are in the process of destroying AQAP."
