Saudi coalition claims downing Yemeni drone

TEHRAN, Nov. 01 (MNA) – The Saudi coalition claimed that it had intercepted and shot down a drone fired by Yemeni forces into southern Saudi Arabia.

According to the official news agency of Saudi Arabia, the Saudi-led coalition claimed Monday Morning that it had intercepted and shot down a drone belonging to the Yemeni army and popular committees.

Turki al-Maliki, the official spokesman for the Saudi coalition claimed that the explosives-laden drone fired into Khamis Mushait in southern Saudi Arabia was intercepted and shot down by the coalition.

He also made false claims against Yemeni forces, claiming that Saudi Arabia would take the necessary measures to protect civilians.

This is not the first time that the Saudi coalition has claimed to have intercepted and downed Yemeni forces drones.

Saudi Arabia, at the head of an Arab coalition backed by the United States, launched a military aggression against Yemen and imposed a land, air and sea blockade on April 26, 2015, claiming that it was trying to bring the ousted Yemeni president Mansour Hadi back to power.

The military aggression did not achieve any of the goals of the Saudi coalition and was only accompanied by the killing and wounding of tens of thousands of Yemenis, displacement of million people, destruction of Yemen’s vital infrastructure and spread of famine and infectious diseases.

The Yemeni army has always emphasized that it will continue its attacks against military targets deep in Saudi Arabia as long as the aggression and siege of Yemen continues.
