The Saudi-led Arab coalition refuted on Wednesday claims by the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen that they had downed a Saudi warplane.


Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki rejected the claim as baseless.


He said the Houthi statements refer to a failed attempt to down a warplane in 2018 and that today’s allegations are “an extension of the militias’ lies”.
