Yemeni Army & Houthi Forces Shoot Down Saudi Spy Drone in Sana’a
The Yemeni Forces and the Houthi Ansarullah Forces, fighting against Saudi Arabia and its mercenaries in Yemen, have shot down a spy drone flying over the country’s capital, Sana’a.
According to the Yemeni news channel Al-Masirah, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was brought down on Wednesday after being hit by a surface-to-air missile launched by the Yemeni Army’s Air Defense Units. The Saudi drone sustained a direct hit, and its remains have been photographed by the Yemeni War Media division.
The following video footage was also released by the War Media, showing the launch of the surface-to-air missile and the downing of the Saudi drone.
Meanwhile, Saudi warplanes are continuing their atrocious aerial assaults against Yemen. Al-Masirah has reported that Saudi bomber aircraft pounded the Bani Hashish district of Sana’a three times on Wednesday. The fighter jets also bombarded the al-Haras school in the capital.
Separately, Saudi jets targeted the Al-Harir district of Yemen’s southwestern province of Ta’izz and the Ghayl district of Jawf Province.
Saudi Arabia began its military aggression against Yemen in late March 2015. The strikes are supposedly meant to undermine the Ansarullah movement and restore power to fugitive former Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured since the strikes began. The Saudi war has also taken a heavy toll on impoverished Yemen’s facilities and infrastructure.
Yemenis have, meanwhile, been carrying out retaliatory attacks on the Saudi forces deployed in the country as well as targets inside Saudi Arabia.
