Sana’a (GPA) – Yemen’s Army and Popular Committees managed to hit another Saudi F-16 fighter jet today. War planes have been hovering over Yemen’s capital city of Sana’a all week looking for airstrike targets.
Saudi Arabia has been bombarding most of northern Yemen with airstrikes all week (even more than usual). Dozens of air strikes have been reported each day in various provinces such as Taiz, Midi, Marib, and Sana’a. Last weekend Saudi airstrikes targeted a school, water project, and farm. Just two days ago Saudi-backed forces on the ground shot a child.
In the video you can see Ansarullah forces (aka Houthis) and the Yemeni Air Defense successfully hit the aircraft with a surface to air missile. The incident took place in Sana’a: Yemen’s capital. After being hit you can see the war plane fall to the ground.
