According to tribal sources and eyewitnesses, the militants were preparing to withdraw from the town ahead of approaching Houthi rebels, a powerful group of Shiites with whom they have been fighting for control over the Al-Bayda province for almost two weeks, during the attack.

Washington has acknowledged using drones in Yemen, but does not typically confirm specific attacks.
