Yemen: Al-Qaeda Ambush Kills 17 Soldiers, General

News | 11.12.2012 | 13:48
 

One of the deadliest single attacks in months took place in Yemen’s Maarib Province over the weekend, with an army patrol guarding the key oil pipeline in the province ambushed by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

The attack killed 17 people, including soldiers and Major General Nasser Farid, the chief of staff for central Yemeni military operations. The pipeline remains under repair after coming under repeated attack in the past several months.

Officials said that the air strikes over the past two days against Maarib were retaliation for the ambush, but while they reported four people killed in the strikes, there was no indication of who they actually were.

Oil pipeline security has been an ongoing problem for Yemen, not just with AQAP but with local tribal leaders, who have regularly turned to strikes on the pipeline when talks with the central government have turned sour.

Secret biological centres have appeared in Africa and Latin and America, biological laboratories of unknown function have opened in Ukraine and Georgia, and it is also planned to open a biological centre in Kazakhstan in 2015. The majority of these activities are being supervised by the Pentagon... In Ukraine in 2013 alone, biolaboratories were opened in Vinnytsia, Ternopil, Uzhhorod, Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, Simferopol, Kherson, Lviv (three laboratories at once in this town!) and Lugansk with the support of the US. Today, the Pentagon’s biolaboratories are gathered around Russia in a semicircle...
