Yemen Houthis Bring Down US Surveillance Drone

Yemen’s Houthi forces shot down a US surveillance drone in the capital Sanaa on Sunday, the Houthi-controlled state news agency SABA reported. The Houthi movement and its ally former president Ali Abdullah Saleh control much of northern Yemen, including Sanaa, and are battling a Saudi-led coalition that is trying to restore the fugitive government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansur Hadi, Reuters reported. The United States backs the Saudi-led coalition by providing it with intelligence and weapons. “A military source said (Houthi) air defense shot down a US MQ-9 surveillance drone in Jader area in the Sanaa Province,” SABA reported. A Reuters photographer said the drone came down at around 11 am local time in a crowded area on the outskirts of the capital, but there were no reports of any casualties. The charred wreckage of the aircraft was carried out by the Houthis aboard a Toyota pickup truck.
