“The air defenses, thanks to God, were able to shoot down an American RQ-20 Puma reconnaissance plane,” Houthi military spokesman Brigadier Yahya Sari said in a tweet on Twitter.
By the grace of God, the air defenses managed to shoot down a US reconnaissance plane, the RQ20, in the airspace of the Haradh district off Jizan with a suitable weapon.
And the process is documented by the military media lens.

Al-Masirah channel website today quoted the Houthi military spokesman as saying that the shooting down was documented by the military media lens.
Since 2015, the Saudi-Emirati coalition has carried out military operations in Yemen, in support of pro-government forces, against Houthi militants, backed by Iran, and who have controlled provinces, including the capital, Sanaa and Saada, since 2014.
The war, which has continued for more than 5 years, has left one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world, with more than 80% of Yemen’s population dependent on humanitarian aid to survive.
