Screen grab from the Houthis’ video.

On May 22, the Houthis (as Ansar Allah is widely known) released footage showing the wreckage of a Saudi-led coalition combat drone that was recently shot down by their air-defense force.

The drone, a Chinese-made CAIG Wing Loong II, was shot down on May 20 along the Yemeni-Saudi border with a new ground-to-air missile that is yet to be unveiled.

The Wing Loong II has endurance of 32 hours and an operational range of up to 4,000 km. The drone shot down by the Houthis was armed with a number of LJ-7 guided air-to-ground missiles.

This was the sixth drone to be shot down by the Houthis this year. The Yemeni group air-defense capabilities now pose a real threat to the aerial operations of the Saudi-led coalition.

0.005% "Jewish" doesn't make you a Jew but a Zion

Zion can’t deal with a small group such as Hamas and Wahhabi can’t do shit against Houthis. Both Zion and Wahhabi have the upper hand yet they are so fuking clueless and useless that it doesn’t matter. Both funded and supported by the US which they can hide under the US ass and committed war crimes – Houthis and Hamas also are blockade.

Yet these fuking apes can never understand people don’t buy their shit and never have…in what fuking world you can say Zion and Wahhabi are winning anything but black facing themselves on the world stage. The fuking trolls even give up, they can’t say shit so they change the subject and forget the power each side has…
