Two strikes apparently carried out by US drones killed five suspected Al-Qaeda members in Yemen overnight, military sources said on Wednesday.
One strike hit a vehicle in the southern province of Shabwa, killing two suspected militants, the sources said.
A second hit a car in Marib province, east of the rebel-held capital Sanaa, killing three, they added.
Both Shabwa and Marib are largely held by Saudi-backed government forces but Al-Qaeda has taken advantage of fighting between them and the rebels to step up its presence.
The Pentagon said on April 3 that it had carried out more than 70 strikes against jihadist targets in Yemen since February 28.
Washington regards Al-Qaeda's Yemen-based branch as its most dangerous and accuses it of plotting multiple attacks against the West.Güncelleme Tarihi: 19 Nisan 2017, 12:18
