Two people were killed ,Tuesday morning, in a raid by a drone , whish was believed to be American ,in the province of Shabwa.

Local sources emerged that the drone  targeted a car ,on which two people who are likely to belong to #al- Qaeda terrorist organization in the lower Marqha area ,Shabwa, which led to destroying and killing the two .

The sources pointed out that the two dead bodies coulsn’t be identified. Notably ,the US drones are continuously launching raids on different parts of Yemen on the pretext of pursuing # al-Qaeda.

The New York Times revealed that the United States has sent US troops to take part in the war against Yemen.

A team of Green Berets, the US army’s special forces, deployed to the kingdom’s southern border with Yemen in December the New York Times reported on Thursday.

The Pentagon’s “limited non-combat support, such as intelligence sharing, focuses on assisting our partners in securing their borders from cross-border attacks from the Houthis,” military spokesman Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway said.

Last month, Robert S. Karem, assistant secretary of defence for international security affairs, told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that roughly 50 American military personnel were in Saudi Arabia and were “largely helping on the ballistic missile threat”.

Earlier this year, the US Congress voted against a resolution that sought to end America’s support for the war.

After on week, the administration of US President Donald Trump approved weapons sales to Saudi Arabia totaling more than $1 billion, despite growing pressure from rights groups to halt arms deals between the West and Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia and the US in Yemen have used the war , that started on 2015, as a testing grounds for military action and weapons. Despite the United States condemning Syria for suspected chemical weapons, the US has no problem selling chemical weapons like white phosphorous to the Saudi coalition to use in Yemen.

In the war’s early days, Yemeni forces detained a large number of trucks in Marib province. The trucks contained materials which militants could use to manufacture sarin gas. Yemeni sources believed the weapons came from Turkish planes under the cover of humanitarian aid.

The United States also sold cluster munitions to the Saudi coalition .Even recent reports suggest the Saudis still use cluster bombs in Yemen.

U.S. support for the Saudi-led bombing campaign has produced thousands casualties between killed and injured .Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people later, the war has yielded little to that effect.The airstrikes typically target homes, schools, businesses, farms, fishing boats, water treatment facilities and just about anything else you can imagine.

Washington also helps enforce the Saudi-led blockade which restricts imports, exports, and the flow of movement. This has put roughly 22 million Yemenis into either food insecurity or direct famine. Medical supplies are scarce and thousands of patients suffer the consequences — cancer patients, those requiring kidney dialysis, and pregnant women are most at risk.

On top of this, the United States has carried out covert military actions in Yemen for over the past three years. From deploying Green Berets and occupying oil fields to running black-site torture centers, the US in Yemen has ignored all international laws and norms.

Amnesty International has slammed the United States, Britain and France for their continued arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

The UK-based rights group said the arms sales have been an “enormous harm to Yemeni civilians” over the course of the war.
