SANAA, Yemen, Yemen's Houthi rebels said, they shot down an MQ-9 unmanned aerial vehicle, over the Yemeni central province of Dhamar, on Tuesday night, Houthi-run al-Masirah TV reported.

The U.S. drone was shot down by a locally-made missile, the television quoted a statement by the group's military spokesman, Yahya Sarea, as saying.

There were no immediate comments from the United States or its ally Saudi Arabia, which has been leading a military coalition against Iran-allied Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen for over four years.

In June, the U.S. Central Command confirmed that an MQ-9 drone was shot down over Yemen, suggesting that Iran was involved in it. Iran had denied the allegation.
