Doha, Feb 15: The Yemeni Shia Houthi rebels said that they had downed a fighter jet of the Arab coalition in the northwestern province of Al-Jawf.
“The air defense forces downed with a modified surface-to-air missile an enemy military plane that was carrying out an attack over the province of Al-Jawf,” a spokesperson for the Houthi forces told Al Masirah broadcaster on late Friday.
He called on the Saudi-led coalition to think about the consequences of air raids in the Yemeni airspace. The Arab coalition has not commented on the reports yet.
Since the start of the Saudi-led intervention in Yemen in 2015, the Houthis have many times claimed they had downed enemy drones. At the same time, the coalition’s aircraft losses are slight. (UNI-Sputnik)
