Houthi rebel fighters said they had shot down a drone type CH-4 operated by the Saudi coalition in northern Yemen near the Saudi region of Jizan.
CH-4 is manufactured by China and is a mixed attack and reconnaissance drone with provisions for 6 weapons and a payload of up to 250 to 345 kg.
The Saudi fighter jets conducted airstrikes targeting the exact location where the drone was shot down.
CH-4 is capable of firing air-to-ground missile from an altitude of 5,000 meters; allowing it to stay outside of effective range of most anti-aircraft guns. It also allow CH-4 to be able to fire from a position that provides wider viewing area.
