TEHRAN (Tasnim) - The Yemeni forces managed to shoot down another Saudi spy drone in an attack on enemy positions in Najran, southwest of Saudi Arabia.
Yemen’s Al-Masirah news website reported on Tuesday that the country’s forces of the army and the popular committees have hot down a German-made EMT Luna class spy drone belonging to the Saudi coalition, which was conducting a reconnaissance operation over Al-Suh region in Najran in southwestern Saudi Arabia.
Al-Masirah TV released a video showing the remains of the Luna aircraft manufactured by the German company EMT Penzberg that was captured by the Ansarullah forces.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by a coalition led by the Saudi regime for nearly four years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.
Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured until then. The war and the accompanying blockade have also caused famine across Yemen.
