US drone strike kills 13 civilians in Yemen
“This was one of the very few times when our target was completely missed. It was a mistake, but we hope it will not hurt our anti-terror efforts in the region,” a senior Yemeni Defense Ministry official told CNN. The official asked not to be named because of the sensitivity of the issue.
“You want us to stay quiet while our wives and brothers are being killed for no reason. This attack is the real terrorism,” said Mansoor al-Maweri, who was near the scene of the strike.
A senior Defense Ministry official said the strike initially targeted two members of al-Thahab clan who lead the terror network’s operations in the province. He said the militants were in a vehicle near the one that was hit, and fled unharmed.
