Following the killing of senior military official Nasser Naji, an army campaign waged against Al-Qaeda hideouts in Marib governorate has left 24 people – 17 soldiers and 7 armed tribesmen – dead in recent days.

A military source stated that “After Nasser Naji was ambushed, authorities launched a series of strikes in Abeda Valley using aircraft and rockets.”

Military officials also suspect that Al-Qaeda was behind the killing of an intelligence officer in Mukalla.

There has been growing concern that a plan exists to target southern military officials who are supported by Hadi. According to a military source, Hadi met with tribal sheikhs and demanded that they weed out subversive elements from their tribes; he also reminded them that attacks against government institutions and services would not be tolerated.
