Saudi coalition claims intercepted 5 drones launched by Yemen

TEHRAN, Jan. 04 (MNA) – The Saudi coalition claimed to have intercepted and shot down five drones belonging to the Yemeni army on Monday night.

Saudi air defenses intercepted and shot down several explosives-laden drones launched by Yemeni forces, Saudi state television claimed late on Monday.

The drones were reportedly launched from near Sana'a, according to the coalition. 

Saudi Arabia, along with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and with the green light of the United States and Western countries, carried out comprehensive attacks on Yemen since March 26, 2015, to prevent Ansarullah of Yemen from coming to power in the country.

Officials of the Yemeni National Salvation Government have repeatedly stressed that the Yemeni army and popular committees will continue to respond to the aggression as long as the Saudi coalition does not stop the war against Yemen and end the siege.

Tens of thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them being civilians.

The coalition has been also imposing a blockade on the impoverished country’s ports and airports as a part of his aggression which is aimed at restoring power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Meanwhile, Yemen is home to the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, with at least 7 million people on the brink of famine and hundreds of thousands suffering from cholera.
