USA forces kill dozens of Daesh militants in Yemen: Pentagon

The U.S. Department of Defense, in a statement, said the strike disrupted the terrorist organisation's attempts to train new fighters.

Witnesses said villagers were prevented by tribal leaders from approaching the area and retrieving the dead and wounded for fear of additional strikes.

The compounds were named after two high-level ISIS figures, its late spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, who the US killed in an airstrike in August 2016, and its Yemeni leader Abu Bilal al-Harbi.

The Pentagon said USA forces killed dozens of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria members in a Monday strike on two training camps in Yemen.

The U.S. military ramped up airstrikes against the group - more than 80 since February - after President Trump gave the military expanded authority to conduct such strikes without high-level approval from the White House.

This is the first time allies of Yemen's internationally recognised government have announced raids against IS footholds.

A US official said the American airstrikes were the first targeting ISIS in Yemen, a country better known as the home of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

"Strikes against ISIS targets disrupt and destroy militants' attack-plotting efforts, leadership networks, and freedom of manoeuvre within the region", Pentagon said.

Al-Qaeda has distanced itself from IS attacks, claiming that it seeks to avoid "the shedding of any Muslim blood" while focusing on fighting the "Americans and their allies". A Saudi-led coalition has been battling the rebels and Saleh's forces since March 2015.
