“Al-Qaeda… is ‘fighting alongside’ US-backed coalition forces in Yemen”

“The leader of al-Qaeda’s forces in Yemen has said his fighters have worked with government-allied factions in the civil war towards their common goal of ousting Houthi rebels…

The militias receive extensive funding and arms from the US-backed Saudi-led coalition, which has supported President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi with air strikes and ground troops since March 2015

al-Rimi, who made his comments from an undisclosed location inside Yemen, is one of the main targets of US drone strikes in the country, with a bounty on his head of $5 million.”

It seems to me he means they WERE fighting side by side under Obama. Trump is bombing him (probably them as a whole)
