Yemen: Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) says attack on Yemen military hospital was a ‘mistake’


The Yemeni wing of al-Qaeda has said a deadly attack on a military hospital by its fighters earlier this month was a mistake. It offered to pay “blood money” to the families of people killed in the attack.

“We do not fight in this way, and this is not what we call on people to do, and this is not our approach,” said a statement released by the al-Qaeda branch.

Qassim al-Rimi, commander of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, said in a video posted on militant websites that fighters had been warned not to attack the hospital, but that one man had ignored the instruction.

“We accept full responsibility for what happened in the hospital and will pay blood money for the victims’ families,” he said. He added that the branch was also willing to pay for the medical treatment of civilians wounded in the hospital attack.
