An Apache helicopter gunship from the Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemeni rebels made an emergency landing Thursday just inside the border from Yemen, a Saudi official said, ruling out hostile fire.
“The pilots are safe,” but there was some damage, said the source, asking for anonymity.
He said the landing was “definitely not because of hostile action.”
The gunship came down in the Saudi border district of Najran, which has been targeted this week by Yemeni rebel mortar and rocket fire that killed several people.
The coalition said gunships were part of the response to that bombardment.
