October 4: Terrorist killed in Yemen strike
Oct. 4, 2016
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TAMPA, Fla. -
The U.S. military successfully struck an al Qa'ida target in the Arabian Peninsula, Sept. 29, in a remote area of Al Baydah Governate, Yemen, injuring one terrorist and killing another.
"The United States is committed to supporting security and stability in the region," said Army Maj. Josh T. Jacques, U.S. Central Command spokesman. "We will take every measure available to degrade their ability to conduct operations."
"Airstrikes carried out by the U.S. and coalition partners hinder AQAP's ability to freely move throughout Yemen." Jacques said. "Anyone who chooses to involve themselves with AQAP accepts the risks of supporting terrorism."
