DUBAI (Reuters) – Yemen’s Houthi movement said on Wednesday it intercepted an F-15 warplane of the Saudi-led coalition near the border with Saudi Arabia.

“Our air defence systems have intercepted an F-15 fighter jet belonging to the countries of aggression in Saada province,” the group’s military spokesman said in a Twitter post.

There was no immediate confirmation from the coalition that has been battling the group for more than four years.
