Alwaght-Yemeni forces, have intercepted and targeted a Saudi-led combat drone as it was flying in the country’s western coastal province of Hudaydah.
An unnamed Yemeni military source told Arabic-language al-Masirah television network that Yemeni air defense forces and their allies shot down the combat drone as it was on a mission over the mountainous Jabaliya area on Thursday evening.
Later in the day, Yemeni soldiers and fighters from Popular Committees targeted and destroyed a Saudi-led reconnaissance drone as it was flying in the skies west of al-Majazah area in Saudi Arabia’s southern border region of Asir.
Meanwhile, the leader of the Ansarullah movement and United Nations Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths met in the Yemeni capital Sana’a, and discussed logistics ahead of peace talks in Sweden next month.
Abdul-Malik al-Houthi stressed the importance of credibility and the will of the Saudi-led military alliance to push for a political solution to the Yemeni conflict away from fallacies that it employed during the previous round of negotiations.
He added that people from all strata of the Yemeni society were suffering from the Saudi-led military aggression alongside the sea, land and air blockade on the Arab country.
The Ansarullah leader also praised positive initiatives and practical steps, which seek to ensure a political solution to the Yemeni conflict.
Houthi then demanded an immediate end to the Saudi-led aggression, the removal of economic sanctions, which have forced the Yemeni riyal to plunge drastically against foreign currencies, and the ease of humanitarian aid deliveries.
