First drone strike under Trump

1 Feb, 2017

The US carries out targeted drone strikes in Yemen, killing five al Qaeda operatives and took place in the town of al Bayda. The strikes were the first to take place under President Trump. The strikes did not require Trump to sign off on them. Under then-President Barack Obama, the authority to order such strikes in Yemen was devolved to the four-star commander of US Central Command, Gen. Joseph Votel.
