Yemen Shoots Down Saudi Arabia's F-16 Fighter Jet Over Sana'a

Yemen's air defense forces, backed by popular forces, shot down a Saudi F-16 fighter jet over Sana'a, Yemen. "The aircraft was targeted with a surface-to-air missile as it was flying in the skies over the Yemeni capital city on Thursday," an unnamed Yemeni military source told Arabic-language al-Masira television. The Saudi jet had taken part in airstrikes against residential neighborhoods in Yemen.

Earlier on Thursday, Saudi fighter jets pounded a commercial district in the Ghamar area of Razih district in Yemen’s Northwestern province of Sa'ada, leaving at least three civilians dead and destroying several buildings.

In a relevant development on May 21, Yemeni Air Defense targeted and shot down Saudi Arabia's F-15 fighter jet.

Saudi Arabia has been leading an invasion of Yemen from the air, land, and sea since March 2015 in an attempt to reinstate former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, and to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement. The Riyadh regime has, however, failed to reach its goals despite suffering great expense.

The military aggression has claimed the lives of more than 14,000 people, mostly civilians and raised concerns among international rights organizations and the United Nations. Those organizations have been repeatedly calling on Saudi Arabia and its partners in the war to end the indiscriminate targeting of areas in Yemen.
