Yemeni Forces Shoot Down Two zionist Saudi Spy Aircraft in Saa’da Province

1 November 2015 21:45



The Yemeni army and popular forces shot down two spying aircraft of the Saudi-led coalition forces as they were running reconnaissance missions in two different parts of the province of Saa’da.

The Saudi-led coalition plane was targeted by the Yemeni army while flying over Sahar region in Saa’da province on Saturday.

Meantime, a separate report said that the Yemeni popular forces have also downed a spying drone in al-Zaher region.

No other details have been released on either incident yet.

Also on Thursday, a Saudi military plane used for airdropping arms cargoes for the terrorists and Saudi troops was shot down in the province of Ta’iz.

The Saudi-led coalition’s logistics plane was hit while flying over the mountainous area of Sabr in Ta’iz province.

In the past 7 months tens of drones and fighter jets of the Saudi-led coalition have been shot down by the army and popular forces in different Yemeni provinces, including Saa’da, Ma’rib, Jizan, Dhamar and Sana’a.

On October 16, the Yemeni army and popular forces hit a strategic military air base in Asir province in Southern Saudi Arabia with Scud missiles, killing tens of high-ranking Saudi officers and commanders and destroying over two dozen F-15 fighter jets and Apache helicopters.

At least 66 high-ranking Saudi army officers, including two senior commanders, were killed when the Yemeni missiles hit Khamis Mushait air base in Asir province in retaliation for the kingdom’s aggression against their nation.

The Yemeni forces also destroyed 17 F-15 fighter planes and 9 Apache helicopters.

The Yemeni forces also shot down a Saudi fighter jet in the Northeastern parts of the country in March.

The Yemeni air defense system hit the warplane in Hoor region in Marib province in Northeastern part of Sana’a.

Earlier in March, a Saudi F-15 fighter jet crashed in the Gulf of Aden as the Kingdom’s offensive against Yemen continued.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 221 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,914 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
