Air strike kills 3 al-Qaeda militants in Yemen
[28/October/2012]

SANA'A, Oct. 28 (Saba) - Three militants of al-Qaeda were killed on Sunday in the northern governorate of Sa'ada by an air strike, Sa'ada governor said.

Fares Manna'a told the Defense Ministry website, 26sep.net, that the air strike targeted the house of Omar Saleh al-Tais, a local al Qaeda commander, in Wadi Abu Jabara of Sa'ada, 250 km north of the capital.

The dead were two Saudi nationals and one Yemeni, Manna'a said, adding that al-Tais was wounded by the raid.

The governor said that the Saudis had money to finance some al-Qaeda terrorist operations in some governorates.

The terrorists have been attempting for over five years to make Wadi Abu Jabara a passageway between Mareb and Jawf in the north and Shabwa and Abyan in the south, but the security authorities and citizens have cracked them down, Manna'a said.
