US assassination drone strikes have killed at least 64 people in southern Yemen during attacks in the past three days on the provinces of Abyan and Bayda.

Yemeni government officials claimed that the airstrikes in the Bayda province and the town of Jaar in the Abyan province during March 9 to 11 targeted “militants.”

However, local residents rejected the government’s allegations and said the victims were civilians.

Yemeni security officials said at least five US assassination drones were involved in the latest strike in Jaar on Sunday, which claimed the lives of six people.

According to Yemeni officials, the assassination drones also conducted major attacks on Friday and Saturday, killing at least 58 people.

The US military uses drones in Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Iraq, and Yemen.

The latest US airstrikes in Yemen were conducted days after longtime Yemeni dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh formally stepped down and handed power over to President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi on February 27.

The new Yemeni president, who is a UK-trained field marshal, was sworn in on February 25 following a single-candidate presidential election on February 21, which was supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia.
