The Yemeni air defense forces downed a Saudi Apache helicopter gunship in Hajjah province on Wednesday.
The Yemeni army’s air defense forces downed the helicopter with a surface-to-air missile in the district of Harad in Hajjah.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 133 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,333 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
