A U.S. commando died and three others were wounded a deadly dawn raid on the al Qaeda militant group in southern Yemen on Sunday, which was the first military operation authorized by U.S. President Donald Trump.

The U.S. military said 14 militants died in the attack on a powerful al Qaeda branch that has been a frequent target of U.S. drone strikes. Medics at the scene, however, said around 30 people, including 10 women and children, were killed.

The gunbattle in the rural Yakla district of al-Bayda province killed a senior leader in Yemen's al Qaeda branch, Abdulraoof al-Dhahab, along with other militants, al Qaeda said.

Eight-year-old Anwar al-Awlaki, the daughter of U.S.-born Yemeni preacher and al Qaeda ideologue Anwar al-Awlaki, was among the children who died in the raid, according to her grandfather. Her father was killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2011.

"She was hit with a bullet in her neck and suffered for two hours," Nasser al-Awlaki told Reuters. "Why kill children? This is the new (U.S.) administration - it's very sad, a big crime,"

The U.S. military said in a statement that the raid netted "information that will likely provide insight into the planning of future terror plots."

The American elite forces did not seize any militants or take any prisoners offsite, said a U.S. military official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The three commandos who were injured were hurt when a military aircraft experienced a hard landing and was "intentionally destroyed in place," the Pentagon said.



DAWN ATTACK

"The operation began at dawn when a drone bombed the home of Abdulraoof al-Dhahab and then helicopters flew up and unloaded paratroopers at his house and killed everyone inside," said one resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

"Next, the gunmen opened fire at the U.S. soldiers who left the area, and the helicopters bombed the gunmen and a number of homes and led to a large number of casualties."

A Yemeni security officer and a local official corroborated that account. Fahd, a local resident who asked that only his first name be used, said several bodies remained under debris and that houses and the local mosque were damaged in the attack.

In a message on its official Telegram messaging account, al Qaeda mourned al-Dhahab as a "holy warrior" and other slain militants, without specifying how many of its fighters were killed.

American forces have not conducted any special operations in Yemen since December 2014, months before nearly two years of civil war rendered the country even more dangerous and offered al Qaeda leeway to expand into more lawless areas.

The United States conducted dozens of drone strikes in Yemen throughout Barack Obama's presidency to combat al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, regarded as one of the global militant group's most dangerous branches.

The local al Qaeda unit organized the Charlie Hebdo magazine attack in Paris in 2015 and has repeatedly tried to down U.S. airliners.

Трамп санкционировал атаку спецназа на штаб «Аль-Каеды» в Йемене






Американский спецназ утром 29 января атаковал штаб-квартиру «Аль-Каеды» в Йемене. Как сообщает Reuters, санкцию на операцию дал президент США Дональд Трамп.

Как заявили в Минобороны США, в результате атаки был убит один из лидеров йеменского крыла «Аль-Каеды» и еще 13 боевиков. Помимо этого погиб один из американских спецназовцев.

Местные медики сообщили, что в ходе перестрелки в общей сложности были убиты 30 человек, включая 10 женщин и троих детей.

Американское командование заявило, что в ходе рейда удалось собрать важную информацию, которая «поможет предотвратить планирование будущих террористических атак». В Пентагоне подчеркнули, что изначальной целью операции был сбор информации о боевиках, а не их непосредственное уничтожение.

Позиции «Аль-Каеды» в Йемене в последние годы значительно усилились на фоне продолжающейся с 2014 года гражданской войны. При президенте Бараке Обаме США регулярно наносили по территории Йемена удары с помощью беспилотников.
