Yemeni air defense units could shoot down a US-made Boeing Insitu ScanEagle unmanned aerial vehicle as it was carrying out hostile acts over the al-Jubah district.

Hawzah News Agency –The Yemeni Army says it has been intercepted and struck another Saudi spy drone over oil-producing province of Maarib.

Yemeni air defense units could shoot down a US-made Boeing Insitu ScanEagle unmanned aerial vehicle as it was carrying out hostile acts over the al-Jubah district on Saturday morning, spokesman for the armed forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree wrote in a post published on his Twitter page.

It was the second such act of defense in less than a week as Yemeni army forces and their allies intercepted and downed a Chinese-made CH-4 combat drone with a surface-to-air missile on Wednesday as it was flying over al-‘Amshiyah area in the Harf Sufyan district of Yemen’s northwestern province of ‘Amran.

Also on November 13, Saree said on Twitter that Yemeni air defense units had used a “suitable” domestically-developed surface-to-air missile to shoot down a US-made Boeing Insitu ScanEagle spy drone over the al-Jubah district in Maarib province.

Yemeni army forces and fighters from the Popular Committees also shot down a Saudi ScanEagle reconnaissance drone on November 9, as the aircraft was flying over the same district of Maarib province.
