Yemeni army forces down Saudi-led bloc reconnaissance drone in Jizan
Air Defenses of the Yemeni army forces downed, on Monday, a spy plane belonging to the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US,as it was flying in the skies over a mountainous region in the kingdom’s southwestern border region of Jizan.
It is Worth Mentioning that Air Defenses of the Yemeni army forces downed last month a spy plane in Sa’ada and six others in Jizan, Najran, West Coast and Taiz frontlines.
Earlier in the day, Yemeni army forces fired a domestically-developed Zelzal-1 (Earthquake-1) ballistic missile at a position of Saudi-backed paid fighters loyal to Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in the country’s northwestern province of Hajjah.
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.
