Head of the Islah party's media department Ali Al-Jaradi has said that counterterrorism is the responsibility of the Yemeni government, affirming that extrajudicial killing is terrorism.
"Blind strikes only kill children, women and innocent people" al-Jaradi tweeted.
At least 41 persons including women and children have been killed in the US military operation in the province of al-Bayda.
The US military said it killed 14 members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in Sunday's dawn raid in the southern province of al-Bayda that involved missiles and helicopter machine guns.
In a statement, the Pentagon did not refer to any civilian casualties, although a US military official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said they could not be ruled out.
