More than 30 Al Qaeda operatives including top leaders were killed when an warplane bombed a hideout for Al Qaeda in Shabwa province, an official statement said Thursday.
The statement said the raid targeted a meeting chaired by Nasser Al Wahayshi and Saeed Al Shihri, the top leaders of the Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
The terrorists were planning for taking retaliatory acts for last Thursday's operation in Al Majalah in Abyan, security sources said. More details, later in the day.
