Another claim by Houthi rebels in Yemen surfaced on Monday that said its air defense unit has fired at a Saudi enemy warplane over the capital Sanaa, the Houthi-controlled Saba news agency reported.

The report said that Yemen air defense fired a ground-to-air missile at the Saudi Coalition’s F-15, read the statement without providing further details.

On Sunday, the rebels claimed that it shot down Saudi Air force’s warplane, although the Saudi-led coalition denied it in the statement saying the ‘Tornado GR4’ bomber crashed due to technical glitch.

In November last year, the Houthis targeted the Saudi capital, Riyadh, with a ballistic missile that was intercepted by Saudi air defenses. It was the deepest strike inside the kingdom since the war between the Saudi-led coalition and the Houthis and their allies began in March 2015.
