Yemeni forces shoot down US-built combat drone in Sana'a

An unnamed Yemeni military source told Arabic-language al-Masirah television network that Yemeni air defense forces and their allies shot down the US-built MQ-1 Predator combat drone with a surface-to-air missile late on Tuesday. The source added that the unmanned aerial vehicle was brought down as it was on a mission in the skies over Dian area in the Bani Matar district of the province. The MQ-1 Predator drone is a remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) built by the American energy giant General Atomics. This model which carries several cameras and sensors has been used by the US  Air Force (USAF) during the war in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Somalia.
