The United States strongly condemns yesterday’s AQAP attack against Yemeni military forces that brutally killed dozens of soldiers and wounded scores more. We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and loved ones of the victims of this heinous attack, which illustrates AQAP’s complete disregard for human life. The United States will continue to support President Hadi and the Yemeni people as they work to realize their aspirations for a brighter and more prosperous future.
