In video : The Moment Yemen's Houthi rebels shot down a modernized U.S drone
Yemen’s Houthi rebels have managed to shoot down one of most modernized U.S made drone over northern districts of Sanaa city the Capital.
“Our air defenses shot down an MQ-1 Predator Drone in Hamdan district north of the capital Sana’a,” said Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, Saba news agency reported.
The MQ-1 is an American remotely-piloted aircraft built by General Atomics that was used primarily by the US air force and Central Intelligence Agency.
Some 20 spy drones have been shot down since the Saudi war on the impoverished country began more than three years ago.
The video below was posted online by the Houthi media outlet which shows the moment the drone was hit by some sort of air defense systems before it went crashing down to the ground.
