The Pentagon is ramping up its military operations in Yemen. On Thursday and Friday, the U.S. carried out more than 30 airstrikes. That’s compared to 36 airstrikes the U.S. carried out in all of 2016 in Yemen. The Pentagon says the strikes were targeting al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. They come after a botched ground raid on a Yemeni village in January left 25 civilians and one U.S. Navy SEAL dead.
