The Karayel is a surveillance, reconnaissance and combat unmanned aerial vehicle system developed by Turkey’s Vestel for the Turkish Armed Forces and is also being exported to some other countries. The Turkish Armed Forces placed an initial order for three ground control stations with two Karayel UAVs each. In 2016, the Vestel claimed that the system was already used along Turkey’s eastern border. Nonetheless, there is no official data on the deployment process.

On January 6, the Air Defense Force of Yemen’s Houthis shot down the Karayel drone of the Saudi-led coalition over the northern Yemeni province of al-Jawf.

Greetings. Thank you for the feedback. The company claims that the system was used on Turkey’s eastern border and there was initial orders by the Turkish military for these UAVs. Nonetheless, you are right that the article should be more clear. We updated it. Sincerely yours, SF Team

you know Abdul Malik Houthis and Erdogan hate each other?

Turkey has traditionally been supportive of the Houthis, as both are against Saudi Arabia. Not only that, but Iran and Turkey are both aligned in the same direction regarding Yemen, which was previously reported on SouthFront. Both countries provide Yemen with humanitarian aid, and Turkish humanitarian groups in Yemen have been repeatedly persecuted by Saudi Arabia.

Sure, Abdul Malik Houthis and Erdogan might not like each other, but they very much have a common enemy. If you look at headlines from actual Turkish sources, the attitude towards Saudi Arabia/UAE is quite hostile.

bro forget it Houthier is like Hezbollah I’m just telling you even Erdogan does not like Shia if Erdogan supports Houthier he would have done so long ago but Erdogan supports Saudi Arabia to hide
