A "hard landing" of an aircraft near the operation site was reported. As a result of the incident, the aircraft "lost its ability to fly and was intentionally destroyed on the spot."




In the course of a successful special operation against al-Qaida’s headquarters in the Arabian Peninsula, brave American troops destroyed some 14 militants and captured important intelligence information that would help the United States in preventing terrorist attacks against its citizens and people around the world.

- stated in the presidential statement.

France-Presse cites his own data: 16 civilians died, the 41 fighter was destroyed.

        Some news is not complete.

        liquidation operation


        Like a militant leader, not just militants:

        US Navy special forces from the Special Operations Forces, supported by aviation from the Navy and US Air Force, conducted a ground operation in Yemen with the goal of eliminating one from the leading leaders of the ter. Al Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) Abdel Rauf al-Dahab.

        As a result of the incident, the aircraft "lost the ability to fly and was deliberately destroyed on the spot."


        But according to other information:
        One of the Apaches was hit and dropped from a small height. The US military subsequently stated that it had made a “hard landing.” The crew survived, but one of the pilots suffered moderate injuries .......... Later, the Pentagon reported that during the operation one American soldier died, three (not counting the injured Apache pilot) were injured.

        France-Presse cites his own data: 16 civilians died, the 41 fighter was destroyed.


        According to the Yemeni authorities, the Americans attacked a total of three residential buildings, although the main target, of course, was the house of al-Dahab. As a result of a missile strike and the subsequent special forces raid, 30 people were killed - 17 militants, 10 women and three children. The Egyptian resource Al-Ahram, citing its sources in Yemen, reported the deaths of 57 people - 41 militants and 16 civilians (8 women and 8 children). Al-Qaeda on controlled accounts in social. networks confirmed the death of Abdel Rauf al-Dahab and several other members of his family, also included in the leadership of ACAP. Among the liquidated militants may be the brothers Abdel Rauf Tariq, Qaeda and Nabil. All of them were relatives of the ideologist, the operational commander of AQAP and the American citizen Anwar al-Avlaki, who was destroyed in 2011. Islamist sources report that the 8-year-old daughter of al-Awlaki (also a U.S. citizen) was killed during a recent raid in the Yemeni province of Al-Baida.

        An armed conflict has been going on in Yemen since 2014, in which, on the one hand, Hussite rebels from the Shiite movement Ansar Alla and part of the army loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh are involved, and on the other, government troops and militias loyal to President Abd Rabb Mansur Hadi.



        In Yemen, the three parties to the Hussite conflict are a coalition led by Saudi Arabia and Al Qaeda. Conflict Map:



        Hadi and his "government" troops in the Yemeni conflict, like those eggs from a joke about sexual intercourse.

      The Saudis, one of the largest holders of American bills, have recently gotten worse with Obama, they don’t benefit from arguing with them further, but the price of oil to some extent also depends on the Saudis. The production of its oil in the United States is profitable at the level of $ 80 per barrel. Having shown himself as an active ally in Yemen, where the Saudis are bogged down with little prospect of victory, Trump is trying to return the Saudis to the belief that the United States in the BV retains its interests and the ability to help the allies, despite the fact that they are enraged in Syria and did not live up to Saudi hopes for the overthrow of Assad.

    I do not rejoice at their successes, I pay tribute to their skill and courage. You do not dispute that this is a dangerous event, even considering the superiority of amers in technology. Destroyed one and a half dozen ghouls. Or do you, like many of their leaders, such as the undereated Vietnamese McCain, think that if the enemy did this, is it bad?

    And no one asked why suddenly information about the losses during the special operation in the media appeared. I think the US special forces conduct operations every day, but it was about this, which was not very successful, that it became known, and Trump's surname is also mentioned at the same time, allegedly he authorized the operation. It seems to me a typical example of internal United States disassembly, where they use any excuse to discredit Trump. But what did our media grab onto this? The Americans destroyed the terrorists - honor and praise - there will be less of this evil spirits alive. The fact that they suffered losses - so what is there to rejoice and scuffle?

      The Americans destroyed the terrorists - honor and praise - there will be less of this evil spirits alive. The fact that they suffered losses - so what is there to rejoice and scuffle?


      It’s quite true, and then, taking into account the latest changes in the USA, who knows, will not our Spn fighters have to wet the bearded with the Americans together? The leadership paths are inscrutable and this option is quite possible, because the USSR, the USA and Great Britain fought together against a common enemy - the Nazis - and that in this case they would write fools .... what

      two opponents, in the ass, will kick your ass as they like? Somalis were in the vast majority, on their territory. Americans at that moment carried out the operation urgently. they didn’t even have armored personnel carriers at that time. and you want to say that they kicked your ass there? I would look at you in hostile territory with a ratio of 1 to 10. the rangers and the delta in this case proved to be very good. did not flinch and completed the task

    Trump, apparently, is not yet ready for a complete break with the traditions of the dark president. laughing

    The operation in Yemen is needed by the Saudis, who started and continues it. What American interest is there, besides abstract solidarity with the Saudis, is not clear.

      The Saudis in Yemen are fighting with the Hussite alliance and the forces of President Saleh. And US special forces conducted an operation against al-Qaida of the Arabian Peninsula, these thugs howl with everyone in a row and took part of the provinces in central Yemen. There are a lot of players in Yemen
