The Pentagon’s website no longer shows an “important intelligence” video obtained in a fatal Yemeni raid, since officials realized the footage has been available online for a decade. On Friday, the Pentagon posted a video to the Defense Video Imagery Distribution System (DVIDS) website they said justified the operation in Yemen which cost the life of one US Navy SEAL and several Yemeni civilians.
At least 10 Yemeni women and children have been killed in the first US military operation in the country authorised by President Donald Trump, medics and local media have said. The US military said it killed 14 members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in Sunday’s dawn raid in the southern province of al-Bayda that involvedmissiles and helicopter machine guns.
The U.S. military says one service member was killed and three others wounded in a raid targeting al-Qaida in Yemen. “We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our elite service members,” said Commander of US Central Command Gen. Joseph Votel.
