The Yemeni army downed on Sunday an Iranian-made drone in the province of Hajjah northwest of the country.

A military source said that the drone was on a mission to scout the area, according to the Ministry of Defense’s website.

The Yemeni army also stated that it shot down a drone on Saturday that belonged to the Iranian-backed Houthi militia after it was found scouting the army’s military positions in the Hiran district in the Hajjah province.

Further inspection after it was downed revealed that it was Iranian-made.

Sunday’s drone is the eighth of its kind to be intercepted by the army as it flew over the Hajjah province since the beginning of 2019.
