U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has given CIA new powers to conduct drone strikes against extremist targets in Middle East as reported by various open sources.
The move represent a change from Obama-era policies that limited spy agency’s role in conducting paramilitary strikes.
According to reports obtained from open sources the CIA first used its new powers in February when it apparently killed Al-Qaeda leader Abu Khayr al-Masri in a strike in Syria.
Trump also has granted request to declare parts of Yemen to be areas of ‘activities hostilities’ and more strikes resolve expected. Strikes may be conducted in war-torn Somalia, a request Trump administration is weighing.
