Houthis Claim Shooting Down Saudi Arabian Panavia Tornado Combat Aircraft

Yemen’s Houthi rebels have claimed shooting down of Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) Panavia Tornado combat aircraft, according to the group’s Al-Masirah TV.

The aircraft was reportedly targeted with a surface-to-air missile (SAM) as it was conducting a mission over Al-Jawf Governorate in northern Yemen.

“A Tornado plane belonging to the aggression forces was shot down in the skies of Al-Jawf Governorate while carrying out hostile missions”, Al-Masirah report cited Armed Forces spokesman as saying.

There were no immediate comments by the Saudi-led coalition over the Houthi claims.
