Military sources told the state news agency Saba on Friday that Yemeni forces bombed and killed four suspected al-Qaeda militants in the country’s restive South. The sources said Yemeni forces late on Thursday “directed a targeted preventive strike on terrorist fighters” plotting attacks, saying it had destroyed weapons stores and several vehicles. It was unclear whether the attack in the Ataq area of Shabwa province was launched from the air or the ground. The government launched an unprecedented ground offensive against the group beginning in late April but barely managed to dent their ability to grab land and strike back at the military.
