Houthis Shot Down Saudi-led Coalition CH-4 Combat Drone Over Ma’rib

On October 6, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) announced that their air-defenses had shot down a Chinese-made Rainbow CH-4 combat drone of the Saudi-led coalition over the central Yemeni province of Ma’rib.

Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Yemeni group, said in a statement hat the drone was conducting “hostile acts” when it was shot down with a “ground-to-air” missile over the district of al-Jubah.

The CH-4 drone was developed by the China Academy of Aerospace Aerodynamics to carry out reconnaissance and combat missions. The Saudi military purchased an unknown number of the drone a few years ago.

This was the fourth Saudi CH-4 combat drone to be shot down by the Houthis this year. The first drone was shot down over the district of Meghdal in Ma’rib on February 12. The second one was shot down over an unspecified part of Ma’rib on March 23. The third was shot down over the district of Al-Maraziq in the northern province of al-Jawf on May 23.

The Houthis have been leading an offensive to capture Ma’rib city and nearby oil fields from Saudi-backed forces for more than seven months now.

In the last few weeks, the Yemeni group and its allies captured key areas in al-Jubah, which borders Ma’rib city from the south, despite sustain some serious losses.

What is this one? The 400 hundredth drone shot down by the Houthi? The saudi buffoons are useless clowns in every segment of military activity, pure comedy.


The only saudi military “successes” in Yemen are bombing weddings and funerals.

That tells you everything about the inbred clowns from riyadh.

This is not exactly like that. This is proxy war between Saudis and Iranians. Houthis also target civilians but they don’t have the means that the Saudis have.


You are a wahhabi apologist? May God have mercy when your day arrives.

Only the sickest individual would try to defend saudi/zionist crimes against humanity.

The end

Stop talking to a bot. This code is not coded to make intelligent replies, but only stupid provocations.


What is behind your claimed “code” a robot or a degenerate? Last time I checked people still control machines. Go watch the entire Terminator series repeatedly and let me know how it went.

Chris Gr

I am not a Wahhabi apologist. I say what I see. But the best thing is probably to stay away from this conflict.


Houthis target civilians where and when?

Chris Gr

With missiles


Houthis are not the types who kill civilians they send missiles against Saudi Arabia in Yemen but missiles can not always hit perfect but can also hit unlucky and wrong places so innocent die does not mean Houthis kills on purpose

not true. typical zionist peopaganda against God
Ansar Allah is independent and puts Palestine at the heart of their revolution.
Yemen form part of the resistance, IUran can advise and help with military supplies, but no one tells Yemen’s Ansar Allah or their revolutionary committees what to do. Yemen has bled much for its fight for liberation and independence from US and zionist schemes and invasion. They play an important part in the the war to liberate the Earth from Satan and will form an important part of Imam Mahdi’s army and are mentioned in the mahdian prophecy.

Many countries are supporting the Houthis.


Long live Abdul Malik Houthis world best hero yemen snake ;)

brah…..lol…..how can you be so naive? Are you seriously this stupid? your deductive logic is on par with a notion such as …..’but I’ve got me a big ol juicy ass…….therefore, I let my friend bust me in the booty’……lol……A commercial chinese deal with the sawdi’s for these junk drones equates to the Chinese supporting the Yemeni gubment for you?
