On Monday, the Houthis terrorist movement announced that it had intercepted and targeted a US-built Boeing Insitu ScanEagle spy drone belonging to the Saudi-led military coalition as it was flying over the country’s northern province of Hajjah.

The spokesman for the Houthi forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said in a post on his Twitter page on Monday that Yemeni air defense units shot down the unmanned aerial vehicle as it was carrying out hostile acts in the sky over the Harad district.

The Boeing Insitu ScanEagle is a small, long-endurance, low-altitude unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) built by Insitu, a subsidiary of Boeing, and is used by the Saudi-led coalition.

Fierce battles are ongoing between the Yemeni army, backed by the resistance forces, and the Houthi militias, in northwest Ma’rib, towards Al-Hazm, the center of Al-Jawf Governorate.
