Al-Qaida Leaders Escape Yemen Airstrike

 Yemen Post Staff

Senior Al-Qaida leaders, two, escaped an airstrike which killed three militants in Yemen on Monday, News Yemen reported, quoting local sources.
Nabil Al-Dhahab and Qaed Al-Dhahab, the leaders of Al-Qaida in the Rada city in Baidha province, were targeted this afternoon while driving a car in the Masanih area, the website reported.
"They escaped the airstrike which killed three Al-Qaida militants," the sources said, according to the website.
Earlier this year, Al-Qaida seized Rada and other parts in Baidha, but left the areas after the government met their demands including the release of militants from state prisons.
Leader of Al-Qaida in this province was killed in family clashes after this development.
Monday's airstrike coincided with ongoing battles on Al-Qaida in the southern Abyan province, where hundreds of militants have been killed and injured including senior leaders in the past two months.
With direct support from the US and tribal fighters, the forces have recently stepped up the offensive against the militants to retake key towns including Zinjibar, the capital of Abyan, which were seized last year.
They have so far regained control of some areas and are now surrounding the most notorious strongholds of the militants: Zinjibar and Jaar.
More recently, President Hadi ordered to further intensify the war on the militants to retake the two cities and so far the forces retook key militant positions on their outskirts.
