Saudi warplane crashes in southern Yemen, pilot killed

via Press TV
A Saudi warplane has crashed in Yemen’s southern province of Abyan for unknown reasons, killing the pilot onboard.

The Typhoon warplane crashed into a mountain in Al Wade'a district on Wednesday, Yemen’s Saba news agency reported.

The report identified the pilot as Mahna al-Biz.

Last week, a UAE pilot was also killed in another warplane crash in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia along with his allies -- Bahrain, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, and Sudan-- has been pounding Yemen since March 2015 in an attempt to crush the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement and reinstate the former Yemeni government, a close Riyadh ally.

Houthi fighters, backed by the Yemeni army and popular forces, have been defending the country against the all-out aggression.

I haven't talked about it for a bit but the curb stomping that the Saudis are receiving seems to be continuing.

Doesn't matter if it was mechanical or a shootdown.

The Saudis just lost another of their first rate fighters and probably a distant relative of the crown prince.

The House of Saud can't be happy.
