The coalition says his defenses dropped 11 Houthi drones in Seiyun

A spokesman for the Saudi-led Arab Coalition in Yemen, Turki al-Maliki, said on Monday that air defences had been able to drop 11 Houthi drones in Seiyun, Hadramawt province, in the past few days.

Al-Maliki said, "The Houthis are storing" drone "planes near populated neighbourhoods in Sanaa and putting their platforms in residential areas," according to the summary of the Arab website of the al-Maliki press conference in Riyadh.

Al-Maliki did not mention any other details about the planes that intercepted . However, he noted that the latest coalition operations have destroyed the weapons workshops and launchers of unmanned aerial drones in Sanaa.

The coalition's defenses dropped two planes in Seiyun last Thursday, as the city was preparing to receive President Hadi, the Parliament members  and representatives of foreign countries.

The governor of Hadramawt Faraj al-Bahssani said on Thursday that the two planes had been identified, their starting position and the quality of their industry, and the time was not right to disclose more details.

Al-Bahssani accused the Houthi group of firing the two planes, but a spokesman for the Houthi forces, Yahya Surai’a, denied that they had fired any aircraft and said that "there were no military operations in Seiyun."
