Helicopter-born commandoes, believed to be Americans, launched a raid in southern Yemen at dawn on Sunday that killed several people, including three al Qaeda suspects, residents told Reuters.
The official said American elite forces did not seize any militants or take any prisoners off-site after Saturday's raid, which the Pentagon said killed 14 members of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
Noriega, who ruled Panama from 1983 to 1989, left prison under heavy police guard to undergo treatment ahead of the surgery planned for Feb 15. USA drones have carried out periodic attacks on al Qaeda in Yemen.
The aircraft, which was sent to evacuate the wounded, was unable to fly after the landing.
Central Command said an aircraft assisting in the operation experienced a hard landing, resulting in an additional USA injury. United States officials said the targets were houses in the village that were believed to contain intelligence of enough value to warrant a risky ground operation rather than air strikes.
The U.S. military said in a statement that the raid netted "information that will likely provide insight into the planning of future terror plots". About 30 men, women and children were killed in the raid, it added.

The United States conducted dozens of drone strikes in Yemen throughout Barack Obama's presidency to combat al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, regarded as one of the global militant group's most risky branches.
The name of the service member killed in action is being withheld pending notification of next of kin, the statement said. The official requested anonymity for fear of reprisals.
The American death in the January 28 raid is the first known US combat death since President Donald Trump took office last week.
