The Yemeni Air Defenses shot down a Chinese-made Wing Loong II spy drone belonging to the UAE Air Force, Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Yehya Saree announced on Tuesday morning.
The spy drone was shot down in the airspace of Ain Directorate in Yemen’s Shabwa Province while it was carrying out hostile acts.
The operation used a domestically-built surface-to-air missile, the Yemeni military spokesman added.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Tens of thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
