US Drone Attacks Kill Tens of Civilians in Yemen

TEHRAN (FNA)- At least 64 civilians were killed in separate US drones missile attacks in Yemen's Southern provinces in the last three days.



Yemeni government officials claimed that the airstrikes in the Bayda province and the town of Jaar in the Abyan province during March 9 to 11 targeted "militants".

However, local residents rejected the government's claims and said the victims were civilians.

Yemeni security officials said at least five US assassination drones were involved in the latest strike in Jaar on Sunday, which claimed the lives of six people.

According to Yemeni officials, the assassination drones also conducted major attacks on Friday and Saturday, killing at least 58 people.
