Al Qaeda claims Yemen attacks, vows more strikes

“Al Qaeda’s Yemen arm said on Friday it was behind coordinated attacks on security offices in the Arabian peninsula state in which four people were killed, and threatened more strikes on Yemeni targets.

Gunmen on motorcycles stormed police and intelligence offices in south Yemen and opened fire on July 14, part of a series of recent al Qaeda attacks in response to a government crackdown.

‘Two squads of the Jamil al-Ambari Martyr Brigades carried out attacks on the dens of oppression and aggression — the political and general security buildings in Abyan province — in two blessed operations,’ al Qaeda’s Yemen-based regional wing said in a statement posted on an Islamist website.”
