Yemeni troops shot down a Saudi spy drone while flying in the skies over the kingdom’s southwestern border region of Najran.

On Tuesday afternoon, Yemeni troops intercepted and targeted a reconnaissance mission over al-Kasarah area of the region, situated 844 kilometers south of the capital Riyadh, Yemeni media reported.

Earlier on Saturday, the Yemeni soldiers shot down another Saudi-led drone over the Jabal al-Alam mountainous area in the southern border region of Jizan.

According to the Ansarullah revolutionary movement at the time, the unmanned aerial vehicle was targeted with a proper missile as it was conducting “hostile acts” in the area.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its allies launched a devastating campaign against Yemen, with the goal of bringing the government of former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and eliminating the Ansarullah, whose fighters have been helping the Yemeni army significantly in defending the country against invaders since the onset of war.

According to the US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project, the war has so far claimed more than 100,000 lives.
