SANAA: Three Yemeni soldiers were killed Wednesday when suspected Al-Qaeda gunmen opened fire on a military zone in the country’s Hadramawt province, a military source said.

“Three soldiers were killed in the attack on the first military zone in the Al-Qoton district, and the gunmen managed to get away,” the source said, requesting anonymity as he was not authorised to brief the press.

“We suspect the gunmen belong to Al-Qaeda,” the source added.

Al-Qaeda has flourished in Yemen as the country’s civil conflict shows no sign of waning.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) extremists remain active in the vast region of Hadramawt, where a number of the group’s leaders are based.
