SANAA - Yemeni forces gunned down two Al-Qaeda militants in a raid on their southern hideout early on Tuesday, hours after drone strikes killed two others in the centre of the country, officials and tribesmen said. The army backed by militiamen “raided a house where Al-Qaeda militants were hiding” in Jaar, prompting a firefight in which “two militants were killed and three others were arrested,” Mohsen bin Jamila, an official in the region, told AFP. Abdullatif al-Sayed, who leads the militiamen known as the Popular Resistance Committees, was wounded during the early morning clashes, the official said. Jaar, which the army recaptured from the jihadists in June with the help of the militiamen, was the site of a suicide attack on Saturday in which 45 people were killed. Closer to Sanaa in Bayda province, two drones targeted Al-Qaeda positions, killing two other militants among them a local leader of the network identified as Abu Osama al-Maaribi, tribal sources said.
