Yemeni Troops Shoot down Saudi Fighter Jet in Sana’a ~ Yemen Updates: 24 May 2015
TEHRAN (FNA)– A Saudi fighter jet was shot down by Yemeni air defense forces in the capital city of Sana’a, a military source announced Sunday.
A senior Yemeni military source, preferring anonymity, said that the Yemeni troops brought down the Saudi F-16 jet in the district of Bani Harith, Northern Sana’a, while it was pounding residential areas as well an air base in Dailami.
Back in March, Yemen’s air defense system also hit a Saudi warplane in Hoor region in Ma’areb province in Northeastern part of Sana’a.
Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen in the last 60 days to bring its ally, fugitive president Mansour Hadi, back to power.
The airstrikes have killed, at least, 3,889 Yemenis, according to FNA’s independent tally.
According to a recent report by Freedom House Foundation, most of the victims of the deadly Al Saud campaign are civilians, including a large number of women and children.
Thousands of residential buildings have been destroyed, and hundreds of civil and public facilities were reduced to rubble as a result of the bombardments by Saudi warplanes on the Yemeni cities and towns, the group said.
