Yemen’s Houthi rebels shoot down US drone and release images of wreckage

Jerusalem — Houthi rebels Yemen claimed on Saturday to have shot down another of the US military’s MQ-9 Reaper drones, releasing images of parts that corresponded to known parts of the drone.

The Houthis said they shot down the drone with a surface-to-air missile, part of a renewed series of attacks carried out this week by the rebels after a relative pause in their pressure campaign on the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza Strip.

The lieutenant colonel of the United States Air ForceDefense Department spokesman Bryon J. McGarry acknowledged to The Associated Press on Saturday that “a U.S. Air Force MQ-9 drone crashed in Yemen.” He said an investigation was underway, without giving further details.

The Houthis described the shootdown as having occurred on Thursday above their stronghold in Sadah province.
