Air defenses shoot down the second reconnaissance plane over the front of Haradh




Yemeni air defenses of the Yemeni army forces on Monday evening ‘shot down the second espionage aircraft of the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US, over the front of Harad, a few hours after the fall of a modern plane on the West Coast Front.

A Yemeni Air Force source reported that an espionage aircraft of the coalition east of Jabal El-Nar was shot down by the Haradh Front.

The air defense units ,this afternoon, was able to catch a modern reconnaissance aircraft to the coalition during the operations of espionage north-east of Drehami West Coast Front.

In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started  a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 60,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and  prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.

Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.

However, Saudi Arabia relies heavily on the US in its brutal war on Yemen. Washington has deployed a commando force on the Arab kingdom’s border with Yemen to help destroy arms belonging to Yemen’s popular Houthi Ansarullah movement. Washington has also provided logistical support and aerial refueling.
