SHAFAQNA(Shia International News Association)—A U.S. unmanned warplane struck a vehicle in northeast of Yemen's capital Sanaa on Monday, killing four people, the Yemeni Defense Ministry said.
It was the fourth such attacks by the U.S. drones in two days.
On Sunday, Yemeni military officials said that eight people were killed in two drone strikes in Abieda valley in central Marib province. They said at least three of the bodies were charred beyond recognition, according to AP.
The rise in assassination drone attacks has ignited massive anger among Yemenis against the central government and the United States.
The tribesmen usually cut roads linking major cities or cut oil supplies to protest against the drone strikes which they said had killed more civilians than militants, according to Xinhua.
FACTS & FIGURES
The U.S. regularly carries out assassination drone attacks in Yemen, which is located on the tip of the Arabian Peninsula and among the poorest in the region.
The latest raids bring to at least 27 the number of people killed in U.S. drone strikes in Yemen in the past month, according to media reports.
According to a recent Washington Post report, the Yemeni government has been trying to conceal U.S. drones strikes that have been killing innocent civilians.
The United States never comments on strikes by its pilotless aircraft, which it has used in Yemen for years. The Yemeni government tolerates such strikes but usually does not comment on the U.S. role in specific incidents.www.shfaqna.com/English
