On March 4, "the mujahedeen carried out a series of operations... against government forces deployed at the entrances of Zinjibar," capital of Abyan province, said the group's Yemeni branch.

Islamist militants also "blew up a Yemeni airforce military plane in Dulaimi army base that was transporting weapons to Aden and Hadramawt" provinces, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) said in a statement.
