Al Qaeda captures 5 towns in Yemen

Since late January 2016 Al Qaeda has captured a string of towns in southern Yemen. On 26 January they took Lahij (al Houta). On 1 February – Azzan. On 4 February – Al Mahfid. And in the following days – Ahwar and Shuqrah.

The offensive has connected Al Qaeda territory in the eastern part of Yemen with its enclave in the Aden area. Therefore, the piece of Yemen under Al Qaeda control is now getting closer to constituting a coherent geographical unit.

Al Qaeda takes 2 towns from the Yemen government

On 2 December 2015 Yemeni Al Qaeda capture two towns controlled by the Hadi government forces that are supported by the Sunni coalition including Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

The towns in question are Zinjibar and Jaar in the south of the country, north-west of Aden. Zinbijar had been under Houthi control and was retaken from the Houthis by the Sunni coalition on 10 August 2015.

As the Sunni coalition is struggling to advance against the Iranian-backed Houthis on the front lines, Al Qaeda’s attacks in the coalition’s rear constitute another complication.
