The Coalition said that its forces launched a search and rescue operation for the warplane.

The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen said on Saturday that one of its warplanes was shot down over a mountainous northern province while providing air support to government forces fighting the country’s rebels.

The Tornado aircraft came down on Friday in northern Al Jawf province during an operation to support Yemeni government forces, coalition’s spokesman Col. Turki Al Maliki was quoted as saying by the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

He did not specify the fate of the crew or the cause of the crash.

The SPA report quoted Col. Al Maliki as saying: “At (2345) Friday, 14 February 2020, a Royal Saudi Air Force Tornado fighter jet crashed while conducting close air support to units of the National Army of Yemen.

The Arab Coalition supporting the legitimate government in Yemen said that its forces launched a search and rescue operation for the warplane.
