This is a major scandal for the USAID agency, which is supposed to provide assistance, not weapons.
This is the second time that Yemeni forces have uncovered weapons provided by the US Development Agency (USAID) to pro-coalition forces, who had offered such weapons to al-Qaeda and ISIS elements after taking control of the two districts in Bayda province strongholds in central Yemen.
