Residents also cited ground battles involving American soldiers and Al-Qaeda militants but the Pentagon formally denied any U.S. raids or combat on the ground.The United States carried out a raid in late January in Yemen against Al-Qaeda militants in the Arabian Peninsula by U.S. commandos, an operation in which 14 extremists and a Navy SEAL died, as well as civilians.
