#AceWorldNews- SANAA – April 24 – (ALKABAR) – Al-Qaeda militants have seized hospitals in southern Yemen to treat wounded comrades following blistering air strikes that killed scores of gunmen in two days, medics said Thursday.

An intensive aerial campaign by US drones and Yemeni jet fighters on al-Qaeda bases in the rugged mountains of nearby Abyan province killed some 70 people over the weekend, many of them believed to be militants.

On Sunday, militants stormed the hospital of Azzan, in Shabwa province, as well as two smaller medical centres in nearby districts, the sources said.
