Witnesses tell NPR about the raid, the military’s first under President Trump. It resulted in deaths of a Navy SEAL and civilians. A CENTCOM investigation is underway, but similar raids could follow.

TRUMP’S FIRST OPERATION

The battle and its aftermath, described to NPR by U.S. national security officials as well as the local witnesses, are the subject of a new investigation by the U.S. Central Command. A Navy SEAL and two-dozen Yemenis were killed, including women and children; later in the week it was reported that video the Pentagon described as intelligence gained in the raid had been publicly available for a decade.
