S. Arabian drone downed in Najran

Tehran, Yemeni Army and popular committees shot down an unmanned plane of the Saudi-led coalition in Najran, southwestern Saudi Arabia, on Friday.

According to Yemen official news agency (Saba), Yemeni Army and popular committees' anti-aircraft systems targeted the spy drone in Najran and downed it.

Yemeni authorities have frequently announced that the missile attacks are in retaliation for the crimes being committed by Saudi Arabia and its allies against the innocent people of Yemen.

In March 2015 Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies launched a large scale military aggression against the impoverished Arab country in a bid to bring back to power deposed Yemeni president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

So far 14,000 innocent Yemeni people have been killed and the country has been turned into ruins as a result of Saudi Arabian aggression.
