Yemeni forces shoot down Saudi spy drone over Ma’arib

Yemeni air defenses have shot down a Saudi reconnaissance drone over the war-torn country’s central Ma’rib province.

Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network reported on Thursday that the drone was shot down over the province’s Harib al-Qaramish region.

On December 30, Yemeni fighters managed to shoot down a Saudi unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) as it was on a reconnaissance mission in Yemen’s northwestern province of Hajjah.

Back on October 27, Yemeni forces, using a surface-to-air missile, shot down a Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jet belonging to the Royal Saudi Air Force as it was flying east of the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a.

Earlier that month, the Yemeni army announced that it also managed to shoot down a US-made General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper, a drone operated by the Royal Saudi Air Force.
