Yemen Cabinet Minister Condemns Drone Strikes

 A Yemeni cabinet minister on Tuesday criticized the US’s drone war in Yemen, a tactic that is supposed to eliminate alleged al-Qaeda threats, but which often kills civilians and generates outrage among the local population.
“To have an innocent person fall, this is a major breach,” Yemeni Human Rights Minister Hooria Mashhour told Reuters.

“I am in favor of changing the anti-terrorism strategy, I think there are more effective strategies,” she said, that “can be applied on the ground without harming civilians and without leading to human rights violations.”
