Recent US air strikes in Yemen have killed 10 Al-Qaeda operatives in the war-torn country, a Pentagon official said Friday.

"We have conducted four counterterrorism strikes against AQAP (Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula) since April 23, killing 10 Al-Qaeda operatives and injuring another," Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis told reporters.

He added the United States is providing intelligence and a limited number of personnel to United Arab Emirates forces operating in Yemen.
