Photos released by SPA showed the damaged roof of a building as well as what appeared to be broken parts of the drone.

“The propaganda carried out by the Houthis aims to raise the morale of their members. The Houthi militias are trying to calm the popular anger in their areas of control with fabrications and false victories,” Arab Coalition Spokesman Brigadier General Turki al-Maliki said recently.

“The aim of such media fabrications is to cover the reality of the operational situation on the ground, and the heavy losses of terrorist elements and militia military equipment in the Marib and al-Jawf governorates, where more than 4,000 vehicles were destroyed,” he added.
