On December 1, 2019, Al-Masirah TV (Yemen) aired a video of Houthi militants displaying a downed Chinese-made Wing Loong drone and its missiles, hardware, and cameras.
One of the militants explained that the drone was downed in the Hayran District by Yemen’s air defense system, and he said that the drone’s still-intact hardware will be reactivated.
In a warning to the Houthis’ enemies, one of the militants said that they are waging Jihad for the sake of Allah and that they can strike targets deep in enemy territory. The militants brandished their rifles and chanted: “Allah Akbar! Death to America! Death to Israel! May the Jews be cursed! Victory for Islam!”
