A warplane of the Saudi-led coalition air force was shot down by Houthi rebels.
Yemeni media reported that the country’s air defense forces had hit a coalition jet near the capital Sanaa on Saturday.
Sputnik News reports:
According to the source, the pilot of the jet is “alive and was placed under arrest.”
On Wednesday night, a Saudi Arabia-led coalition including the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan, Morocco, Sudan, Pakistan and Egypt launched a military campaign against Houthi positions in Sanaa.
The operation followed a request by the country’s ousted President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
The airstrikes have caused dozens of deaths and casualties.
