Three soldiers died in the operation and three Al-Qaeda gunmen surrendered to the raiding force, the statement said. It confirmed that Al-Tais was killed in the operation.

Al-Tais was known as mastermind of assassinatinga number of foreign diplomats and Dr. Ahmad Sharaf-Eddine, a member of the national dialogue convention, as well as a number of security personnel and citizens.


Four vehicles that were rigged with explosives and prepared for suicide attacks were destroyed in the raids.

In Sanaa, authorities nabbed three Al-Qaeda activists, who were involved in packing explosives into vehicles for sabotage attacks.

Authorities have been clamping down on Al-Qaeda, seeking to build bases in several regions, particularly in areas of impoverished natives.
