Pentagon Resumes Arms Aid to Yemen for Counter-Terrorism

The Pentagon is resuming the supply of counter-terrorism weapons, ammunition, radios, aircraft and commando raiding craft to Yemen after a year’s interruption because of the nation’s instability.

The renewed aid totals about $112 million, according to Pentagon data. The equipment is being purchased under so-called Section 1206 funding, which lets the Pentagon spend on counter-terrorism training and equipment for allies.
