According to media news after Pakistan and Afghanistan, the US is spreading its drone attacks to Somalia and Yemen. Several people were killed and wounded by a US drone attack in Yemen’s restive southern province of Abyan.
Some days ago the US also conducted a drone attack in Somalia, wounding two senior members of Al Shabab fighter group. The airstrike makes Somalia at least the sixth country where the US is reportedly using drone aircraft.
The realty is that drone attacks provide nothing except deaths and destruction and hate and suicide attacks. Drone attacks are not only against the sovereignty of any country but also against the charter of the United Nations. These days drone attacks and killing of civilians has been the main cause for recruiting militants.
Yemen is a tribal society and drone attacks against any tribe could fuel the ongoing conflict. Yemen is already facing political crises and this drone onslaught attacks would further destabilise the entire region.
