We hear nothing about this in American News Coverage. Is it not blatantly obvious that we are in the middle of backing a yemeni civil war? Our drones know this to be true, but do you?

Yemen says it has foiled a major al-Qaeda plot to blow up oil pipelines and seize two of the country’s main ports.

Government spokesman Rajeh Badi said the plans included taking control of the al-Dhaba oil terminal and killing or kidnapping foreign workers.

The authorities have introduced security measures to protect government buildings and other key targets.

Hundreds of armoured vehicles have been deployed in the capital, Sanaa, while the US and UK have withdrawn diplomats.

The US is also reported to be preparing special operations forces for possible strikes against the Yemen-based al-Qaeda in Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

Brigadier General Mohammed al-Qaedi: “Terrorist acts are rejected by the Yemeni people and the country’s institutions.”

A suspected US drone strike killed seven alleged al-Qaeda militants in south-eastern Yemen on Wednesday – the fifth such strike in two weeks.

Yemeni security officials said missiles hit members of a Bedouin tribe west of Attaq, in the province of Shabwa, and destroyed two vehicles.
