A group of around 20 U.S. special operations forces are on the ground in Yemen, reports the Los Angeles Times.
At least one of those troops was shot and seriously wounded on Sunday near the Red Sea city of Hudaida, reports Reuters.
The group is operating from a Yemeni base and using technology such as satellite imagery, drone video and eavesdropping systems to pinpoint targets while military actions intensify, according to U.S. and Yemeni officials.
The contingent of troops is expected to grow and are working in concert with the campaign of airstrikes against al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
