Yemen shoots down Saudi spy drone

Tehran, Feb 9, IRNA -- Yemeni air defense units have shot down a Saudi reconnaissance drone in flight over a border area in Yemen’s northwestern province of Hajjah on Saturday.

According to al-Masirah satellite television network, the Yemeni forces also managed to shoot down another Saudi spy drone in the Kingdom’s southwestern province of Jizan.

Yemen has since nine days ago downed nine spy drones of the Saudi-led coalition in the border areas.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing back the government of Mansour Hadi back to power.

Some 20,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.

The assaults of the Saudi-led coalition forces have failed to stop the Yemenis from resisting the aggression. Recently, the Yemeni army unveiled its home-made underground missile launching pads.
