On May 22, the Houthis (as Ansar Allah is known) announced that their air-defense forces had shot down a combat drone of the Saudi-led coalition, the second in less than a week.

In a statement, a spokesman for the Yemeni group said that the drone, a Chinese-made CH-4, was shot down over al-Maraziq in the northern Yemeni province of al-Jawf. According to the spokesman, the drone was targeted with a “new ground-to-air missile” that has not been unveiled yet.

“We reiterate that the airspace of our country [Yemen] is not a cakewalk,” the spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, said in the statement.

Three days earlier, the Houthis shot down a Wing Loong II combat drone of the Saudi-led coalition over the Yemeni border with the Kingdom’s southern province of Najran. Back then, the group also said that the drone was targeted with a “new ground-to-air missile”.

The CH-4, developed by China’s CASC, has a range of up to 5000 km and an endurance of 40 hours. The drone is equipped with an advanced targeting system and can be armed with a variety of guided missiles and bombs.

The (Wrong) Objective

These Saudi drones are being downed regularly – Saudi military is fifth largest military spender in the world, and yet it can barely manage a stalemate in its aggressive war against Yemeni state. Saudi state is just a clan-run oligarchy-state – very few average Saudi citizens will join the Saudi infantry, to go fight in Yemen for the al-Saud clan, and their attempted resource grab in north Yemen – of untapped Yemeni oil reserves.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
