U.S. military in the last seven days have conducted more than 30 airstrikes against the Al-Qaeda branch in Yemen.
The unprecedented number of strikes have been conducted in separate provinces; an indication of a renewed war on Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
The strikes which have been intelligence led have seen dozens of AQAP fighters killed including some senior figures of the terror group.
Confirming on the air raids, Department of Defense announced the airstrikes against Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in a statement attributed to Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis.
According to the statement, more than 30 strikes in Yemen hit militants, equipment and infrastructure in the governorates of Abyan, Al Bayda and Shabwah, thus inflicting heavy losses on the terrorist group.
Davis described the Yemeni government as “a valuable counterterrorism partner” in the war against AQAP saying this collaboration will continue until the enemy is eliminated.
