"Yemeni Air Defenses shot down a Chinese-made Wing Loong 2 spy drone operated by the US-Saudi aggression," the Armed Forces spokesman Yahya Sare'e said on Tuesday.
He explained that the targeting operation was carried out with a locally made surface-to-air missile.
Sare'e affirmed that the Armed Forces are ready to confront any attempts to breach Yemen's sovereignty or any aggression by US-Saudi aggression.
Enjoying complete arms, logistical, and political support on the part of the US, Saudi Arabia and a number of its allies started a war against Yemen in March 2015 to restore power to Yemen's former Washington and Riyadh-aligned officials.
The war has stopped way short of the goal, while killing tens of thousands of Yemenis in the process and pushing the entire Yemen close to the brink of outright famine.
The Yemeni Armed Forces have vowed, though, not to lay down their arms until Yemen's complete liberation from the US-Saudi aggression.
Saudi Arabia is keen to bring in combat drones from multiple countries to gain qualitative air superiority, most notably US, China and Turkey.
With the ability of the Yemeni air defense to shoot down these drones despite their development, it limits the air superiority of the coalition of aggression, thus weakening the card it is betting on in the battlefield.
In the outcome of the air defense's achievements, the coalition of aggression lost dozens of its various aircraft, warplanes and drones.
