Al-Qaeda in Yemen has issued a video that claims to show American soldiers guarding a building in the heart of Yemeni capital Sanaa.
Al-Qaeda terrorists seize control of city in Yemen
Dozens of al-Qaeda militants Sunday morning seized a city in Yemen’s southeastern province of al-Bayda. The al-Qaeda members — backed by armored vehicles — stormed the al- Bayda province overnight, taking control over the Radda city from all surrounding entrances and directions.
A small security barrack in the city was unable to confront the storming campaign of the well-armed groups and the police forces didn’t show any kind of resistance, according to a report in the Israeli media.
The operations, approved by President Obama and begun six weeks ago, involve several dozen troops from the U.S. military's clandestine Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), whose main mission is tracking and killing suspected terrorists.
