Yemeni Air Defense Forces (YADF) has reportedly shot down a Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jet belonging to the Royal Saudi Air Force, a report says.
Yemen's air defense unit told the country's Arabic-language al-Masirah television network that the aircraft had been targeted with a surface-to-air missile as it was flying in the skies over Nihm district east of the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a on Friday evening.
The report added that earlier this month, the Yemeni forces, using a surface-to-air missile, had also shot down a US-made General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operated by the Royal Saudi Air Force.
In June, Yemeni air defense forces also intercepted and shot down a Saudi F-15 fighter jet in the skies over Sana’a.
According to Yemeni military officials, the invading aircraft had taken part in deadly airstrikes against residential neighborhoods in the Arab country.
