A Saudi fighter jet  been shot down in Yemen by Iran backed Houthi rebels, Press TV reported quoting Arabic-language al-Masirah television on Wednesday.

According to the TV, F-15 fighter jet belonging to the Royal Saudi Air Force was targeted with a surface-to-air missile as it was flying in the skies over northwestern Yemeni province of Sa'ada.

There was no independent confirmation of the report ran by Iranian's regimes's propaganda tool.


The conflift in Yemeni began in 2015 between two factions, each claiming to constitute the Yemeni government, along with their supporters and allies.

Houthi rebels fighting the Saudi-led coalition are backed by Iran in the conflict that has killed thousands civilians since the war began.

Images and a video of the falling plane emerged on Twitter but their authenticity was also not confirmed.
