  Yemen’s army destroyed a Houthi drone in the Maran front, west of Saada province – the third in January so far, Saudi state-news agency reported.

The drone was carrying explosives intended  to target Yemeni army positions, a military source said.

The Iranian-made aircraft is the third drone destroyed by the army in the area, the source said in a statement issued to the Yemeni Ministry of Defense’s official website 26 September.

The military shot down two Houthi drones last week on the Maran front.

The Houthis conducted a drone attack on a military parade in Yemen’s largest air base, Al-Anad, on Thursday. Intelligence Brigadier General Saleh Tamah died of his wounds on Sunday.

At least seven – including Tamah – were killed and 11 injured in Thursday’s incident, which threatens to hamper United Nations-led peace efforts.
