The forces of the Yemeni army have shot down a Saudi-led reconnaissance drone in flight over a border area in the kingdom’s southern region of Asir.
According to the al-Masirah television network, the Yemeni air defense units downed a Saudi drone on Wednesday night over al-Ulab border crossing between Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
Moreover, Yemeni snipers killed a Saudi soldier in the border Saudi province of Jizan.
In addition, Yemen’s artillery unit targeted Saudi forces in Hamezeh village in Jizan region, inflicting damage on them.
