BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Houthi forces claimed via their official media wing that a Saudi warplane crashed near the Yemeni border.
According to the official media wing of the Houthi forces, the Saudi warplane crashed inside the southern province of Asir, which is partially under the control of their troops.
The Houthi forces did not state whether or not they were behind the downing of this Saudi warplane.
Furthermore, the Saudi Ministry of Defense has yet to corroborate these reports.
The last Arab Coalition warplane to crash in either Saudi Arabia or Yemen was an Apache helicopter belonging to the United Arab Emirates (UAE); it crashed near the western province of Hodeideh.
