On February 12, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) released a video documenting the shootdown of a CH-4 combat drone of the Saudi-led coalition.

The drone was downed  a day earlier while it was conducting a sortie over the district of Medghal in the central Yemeni province of Ma’rib.

Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Houthis, said that the drone was downed with a “new ground-to-air missile” while it was conducting “hostile acts” in Yemen’s airspace.

The CH-4, developed by China’s CASC, has a range of up to 5000 km plus a 40-hour endurance. The drone is equipped with an advanced electro-optical targeting system and can be armed with a variety of guided missiles and bombs.

The Houthis boosted their air-defense capabilities in the last few years. The group is known to be operating several air-defense systems, including air-to-air missiles which had been modified to be launched from ground.

In the last three days the Houthis stepped up their attacks on Saudi Arabia. On February 10, Abha International Airport was targeted. On February 11, an attack hit King Khalid Air base. On February 12, both sites were again targeted.

The Houthis carried out these attacks in response to the Saudi-led coalition’s operations in Yemen and the strict siege imposed on the country.
