US Airstrikes in Yemen Hit Area Where Navy SEAL Was Killed | Military.com

The U.S. hit the Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) terror group in Yemen on Thursday with wide-ranging airstrikes that targeted the same general area where Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens was killed.

The Pentagon said in a statement that more than 20 early morning airstrikes, using a mix of manned and unmanned aircraft, were aimed at AQAP fighters, equipment, infrastructure, heavy weapons systems and fighting positions in the Yemeni governorates of Abyan, Al Bayda and Shabwah. The Associated Press, citing Yemeni officials, said the strikes concentrated on an area where the three governorates converge.
