State media: Dozens of militants killed in Yemen

Posted by Arakan Indobhasa Sunday, May 4, 2014

(CNN) -- At least 37 militants were killed by the Yemeni military as part of an ongoing series of operations against al Qaeda, the country's state news agency reported Sunday.

Saba, quoting a military source, said more than 10 other militants were wounded in the counterterrorism operations in Shabwa governate.

Recent operations against suspected terrorists have included attacks by Yemeni commandos and suspected U.S. drone strikes, a high-level Yemeni government official told CNN Thursday.

The Yemeni official, who is being briefed on his nation's ongoing counterterrorism operations, said the raids were "unprecedented" but acknowledged at the time that things in Shabwa "aren't going as well."

"It seems like the militants were ready for the operations," the official said. "Resistance has been stronger and casualties among Yemeni military have been higher."

The military sent reinforcements to Ataq, capital of Shabwa, on Sunday, Saba reported.
