The Trump administration claimed success following a raid on an al-Qaeda camp in Yemen. Yemenis see it as a failure because of civilian deaths, especially the killing of an 8-year-old girl who was an American citizen.
President Barack Obama signaled his concern about civilian casualties in the Yemen war on December 13 when he halted a major resupply of smart bombs to the Saudi Arabian air force. But the same day, the US Air Force delivered the Saudis four new fighter jets.
Rebels in control of Yemen's capital accused the Saudi-led coalition fighting them of killing more than 100 people and wounding hundreds more Saturday in air strikes on a funeral in Sanaa. The coalition denied it.
