Pilot of Downed Saudi Fighter Jet Captured in Sana’a

Yemen’s military and popular forces captured the pilot of a Saudi fighter jet after shooting down his aircraft in the capital, Sana’a, on Thursday.

Yemen’s air defense forces managed to shot down an F-15 Saudi warplane in Bilad al-Rous district, in the Western part of the Sana’a province, on Thursday.

The Saudi fighter was targetted by the Yemeni army anti-air missile defense systems and hit al-Laham mountain after the strike.

Now the latest reports from Yemen’s capital said the pilot of the plane that is reportedly a Saudi national has also been arrested a few hours later.

Yemeni forces and Ansarullah fighters have shot down several Saudi warplanes and spy drones over the past few months in various parts of the country, including the provinces of Saa’da, Ma’rib, Jizan, Dhamar and Sana’a.

On Saturday, the Yemeni army and popular forces shot down two spying aircraft of the Saudi-led coalition forces as they were running reconnaissance missions in two different parts of the province of Saa’da.

The Saudi-led coalition plane was targeted by the Yemeni army while flying over Sahar region in Saa’da province on Saturday.

Meantime, a separate report said that the Yemeni popular forces have also downed a spying drone in al-Zaher region.

No other details have been released on either incident yet.

On October 29, a Saudi military plane used for airdropping arms cargoes for the terrorists and Saudi troops was shot down in the province of Ta’iz.

The Saudi-led coalition’s logistics plane was hit while flying over the mountainous area of Sabr in Ta’iz province.

In the past 7 months tens of drones and fighter jets of the Saudi-led coalition have been shot down by the army and popular forces in different Yemeni provinces, including Saa’da, Ma’rib, Jizan, Dhamar and Sana’a.

On October 16, the Yemeni army and popular forces hit a strategic military air base in Asir province in Southern Saudi Arabia with Scud missiles, killing tens of high-ranking Saudi officers and commanders and destroying over two dozen F-15 fighter jets and Apache helicopters.

At least 66 high-ranking Saudi army officers, including two senior commanders, were killed when the Yemeni missiles hit Khamis Mushait air base in Asir province in retaliation for the kingdom’s aggression against their nation.

The Yemeni forces also destroyed 17 F-15 fighter planes and 9 Apache helicopters.

The Yemeni forces also shot down a Saudi fighter jet in the Northeastern parts of the country in March.

The Yemeni air defense system hit the warplane in Hoor region in Ma’rib province in Northeastern part of Sana’a.

Earlier in March, a Saudi F-15 fighter jet crashed in the Gulf of Aden as the Kingdom’s offensive against Yemen continued.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 225 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,919 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

Yemeni Forces Win Back Key Regions in Southern Provinces

The Yemeni army and the popular forces seized back
several strategic regions in the Yemeni provinces of Ta’iz and Zale, and
purged the regions from pro-Hadi militias and Saudi troops.

Yemeni forces took control of a number of villages in Damet region in
Zale province, and killed tens of terrorists in heavy clashes.
The army and popular forces also advanced from al-Qassr region towards Klabe in Ta’iz province.
On Wednesday, Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters and army troops killed a ranking Saudi commander and dozens of his forces in Ta’iz.
The Yemeni forces took control of a military base
that had been occupied by Saudi forces in Ta’iz province a while ago,
and killed a senior Saudi commander and his troops deployed in the base.
Saudi troops later launched a counter-offensive to
take back the base, but they failed and escaped the region after losing
a number of their vehicles.
