USA warplanes blast al-Qaeda in Yemen

The United States conducted airstrikes overnight on Thursday against several targets suspected of belonging to al-Qaida across south-central Yemen, according to USA and Yemeni military officials, the first US attacks in the country since an ill-fated Special Operations raid in January.

He went on to say that the United States is providing Saudi Arabia with coordinates to strike targets in Yemen.

Al-Qaeda confirmed on March 2 that a US -led coalition drone strike killed its number two leader Abu al-Khayr al-Masri in Syria.

"AQAP is the organization that has more American blood on its hands", Davis said.

A senior al-Qaeda leader named Abu al-Khayr al-Masri was killed in a US drone strike on Sunday near the northwestern Syrian city of Idlib, US officials said on Wednesday, (1 March).

Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Winning Trophies at MUFC: "This is why I came"
Ibrahimovic is not only United's most potent attacking threat, he's also crucial to the cause for his impact in the dressing room. The Swede has been Manchester United's leading scorer with 26 goals from 38 appearance in all competitions.

The missions were the first since a January 28 special ops raid on an al-Qaida compound that killed Chief Petty Officer William "Ryan" Owens and injured three other Marines.

"We have not announced all strikes in Yemen", the official said.

On Thursday, the Pentagon said it had carried out more than 20 strikes in Shabwa, Abyan and Baida provinces.

AQAP has taken advantage of ungoverned spaces in Yemen to plot, direct, and inspire terror attacks against the United States and our allies.

It comes a month after a controversial U.S. raid that was reported to have left as many as 25 Yemeni civilians dead.

Hispanic Owned Companies Place Bids To Build Trump's Border Wall
The businessman added it is unclear what other companies might participate or what demand would exist for the wall's cement. The agency won't post a formal request for bids until March 6, with conceptual designs due on March 10.

Residents told Reuters on Friday that US air strikes were accompanied by gun battles, which they thought involved USA soldiers on the ground in Yemen.

Tribal sources said that there were casualties and that they included women and children. It's odd to me that Mattis, in particular, hasn't said anything publicly since Trump has claimed repeatedly, including in Tuesday night's speech, that Mattis believes the mission was successful. It resulted in the death of Navy SEAL Ryan Owens.

"The raid was valuable, but the strikes were not directly related to it", the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The senior official said the fierce fight put up by militants inside the compound in Yemen testified to the value of the material they held.
