US Embassy In Sanaa Yemen

Army and security forces have intensified security procedures around the U.S. Embassy building in Sana’a. These measures have come in response to anticipated terrorist attacks by Al-Qaeda affiliate Ansar Al-Shariah as revenge for recent killings of the group’s leaders.

According to sources, marines have begun trenches around the embassy which will link the embassy with the Sheraton Hotel, where the marines themselves are settling.

The names of Ansar Al-Shariah militants killed in recent drone strikes included Abdurra’of Naseeb, Abdullah Ba-wazeer, Nabeel Salem Al-Kaldi, Mose’d Al-Nahdi, Khaled Al-Mahmodi and Khaled Al-Taizy.
