Yemeni Houthis group (Ansar Allah) reported that its air defenses downed on Tuesday night in the southern Yemeni capital of Sanaa an reconnaissance drone belonging to the Saudi-led Arab Coalition to support the internationally recognized government of Yemen.

Houthi-run Al-Masirah TV said the fighters of the Saudi-led Arab coalition then launched a air raid targeted the wreckage of the drone that was downed.

There are no casualties reported by Al-Masirah.

"A source in the Air Defenses stated that Air Defenses were able to down a spy drone, MQ1, of the Saudi-led Arab coalition with undisclosed missile", Al-Masirah reported.

The Source confirmed that the coalition aircraft launched air raid on the wreckage of the drone that was shot down, pointing out that this drone is not the first to be shoot down from US type of drones.

The same type was downed on March 23 over the capital Sana'a.

This comes hours after the Houthis  announced that on Tuesday morning launched attacks, with seven drones on two oil pumping stations in the Saudi Arabia depth.

Yemen has been battered by a five-year armed conflict the internationally recognised government backed by a Saudi-led Arab coalition and the Iran-backed Houthis. The conflict has resulted in the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

Yemen 4-year war has left most of the population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 14 million people risking famine and some 1.8 million children suffering malnutrition.
