Yemen's dominant Houthi group said, its forces on Thursday, shot down a Saudi military Apache helicopter, inside the Saudi border region of Najran.

"The defence air force of the national army and popular forces, fired a guided-missile towards the Apache helicopter, while flying over the border area, hitting and downing the Apache accurately," an unnamed military spokesman said.

The agency also cited the Houthi-allied military official as saying, "The operation occurred when the Saudi aggression Apache hit the (Houthi-allied) Yemeni army and popular forces' sites inside the (Saudi) region."

The report provided no further details, and the Saudi-led military coalition has yet to comment on the report.

Meanwhile, it was also reported that, "two Yemeni civilians were killed and four others wounded, when the US- Saudi fighter jets waged two air strikes on Hamadan district, north-west of the Houthi-controlled capital, Sanaa, on Thursday."

On Dec 24, the Saudi-led air strikes killed at least seven children and two women, when the fighter jets targeted their home in Yemen's south-western province of Ibb, according to rescuers and residents of the area.

Houthi fighters have been fighting Saudi Arabia on the borders since the Saudi-led military coalition intervened in the Yemeni conflict since Mar, 2015, via an air campaign.

The campaign is attempting to restore power to expelled President, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. Some 10,000 Yemenis have been killed, with three million others displaced.
