Yemeni army forces backed by allied popular committees loyal to the Houthi Ansarullah movement have shot down a Saudi warplane in the northern province of Sada’a.

Yemen’s official Saba news agency said that the Saudi fighter jet was shot down and subsequently crashed in the Ghamar area of the province on Thursday.

The Yemeni forces have launched an operation to spot debris from the aircraft and shed light on the fate of the crew.

The fighter jet had reportedly conducted a number of airstrikes against Yemeni forces in the region.

Saudi regime forces have yet not commented on the incident; Press TV reported.
