US raid kills 7 al-Qaida militants in Yemen

WASHINGTON – The Department of Defense says the AMERICAN forces have killed seven members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula during a raid in Yemen early Tuesday.

U.S. Central Command says its forces used “a combination of small arms fire and precision air strikes” to attack the compound in Marib Province in central Yemen.

It says, “Raids such as these give insight into AQAP’s character, capacities, and intentions, that allow us to continue to pursue, disrupt and tarnish the group.

The Defence statement adds that the operation was carried out with the support of the government of Yemen.
