Yemeni defences shoot down another Saudi spy drone

The Yemeni army’s air defences have on Monday night shot down a spy aircraft belonging to the Saudi-led coalition forces in the airspace of Sana’a province, northern Yemen.

“Our Air Defences shot down a Chinese-made CH4 spy drone plane belonging to the Saudi-led forces, while it was violating the UN-sponsored truce with hostile actions over the airspace of the capital Sana’a,” the Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said in a statement.

The plane was hit with a locally-made surface-to-air missile, he added.

This is the second drone has been shot down by the Yemeni air defences in less than 48 hours.
