Marking a new achievement, the aerial-defense systems of the Yemeni army and popular committees managed on Friday to down a Saudi Apache helicopter while it was striking the residential buildings in Mede area in Hijja province.
The Yemeni forces also confronted the ground attacks launched by the Saudi-led mercenaries in Harad and many other areas, inflicting heavy losses upon them.
Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Hundreds of thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
However, Yemeni army, backed by the committees has been responding to the aggression by targeting several Saudi border military posts and cleansing several areas across the country, especially the country’s south, from Hadi and al-Qaeda-linked militias.
