BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – A U.S. predator drone killed three high-ranking commanders belonging to the Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) group that is currently operating in Yemen.

According to reports, the U.S. drone strike killed the following Al-Qaeda commanders: Abu Ammar Al-Hadrami, Abu Abdullah Al-Monzari, and Abu Al-Fahtani.

The U.S. drone attack reportedly took place inside Yemen’s Al-Sawma’ah District, which is located in the southern part of the country.

The Al-Sawma’ah District is located in the eastern countryside of the Al-Bayda Governorate; it currently has a large presence of Al-Qaeda fighters.

Over the last few months, there have been several reports of intense clashes between the Al-Qaeda and Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) factions inside the Al-Bayda Governorate.

Due to the ongoing civil war in Yemen, the two terrorist groups have been able to carve out their own pockets in the Al-Bayda Governorate.
