The Ali bin Likra al-Kazimy death by the Yemen army and U.S. drones has been confirmed by al-Qaeda on a Twitter page associated with the group. The death happened during an attack last week, but it was only confirmed by the Twitter posting on Saturday. On May 4, Canada Journal reported on the death. He died from wounds suffered during an attack.

This is just one of the many attacks made by the Yemen army and U.S. drones in the last several days. The Yemen army wants to free the two provinces of Abyan and Shabwa. They are located in the south. Both sides have suffered losses during these attacks, but the death of Ali bin Likra al-Kazimy is considered a victory of the attacks.

However, al-Qaeda forces are still attacking as well. Attacks with suicide bombers have lead to officials asking residents to stay indoors and away from the violence in the area. This new U.S. drone program has received defense by both the White House and the Yemen government since it began, but it has created losses as well.

Are these losses worth the victories? The loss of human life can be considered a casualty of war, but it is still sad to see the loss of both civilians and military soldiers as attacks continue. What do you think of this new report of the death of Ali bin Likra al-Kazimy?
