Yemeni air defences intercept Saudi warplanes over Jawf

JAWF, April 3 (YPA) – Yemen’s army air defences on early Friday intercepted a combat formation of several warplanes of the US-backed Saudi-led aggression over airspace  of Jawf province.

“Our air defences managed to confront a combat formation consisting of a number of enemy warplanes over the airspace of Hazm district of Jawf, using the Fater-1 surface-to-air missile defence system, forcing them to leave without carrying out any attack,” Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e, said.

In the past few days, air defences have responded to several combat formations of hostile warplanes over the skies of Sanaa, Marib and Jawf provinces, using the Fater-1 system.
