Yemen's Houthi forces released footage purportedly showing what they said was downing of a Saudi fighter jet in northern Yemen's al-Jawf Governorate on Friday.

Footage, including thermal imaging, allegedly shows the moment a surface-to-air missile hits the Tornado fighter jet. Chants of "Allahu Akbar" [God is the greatest] and "Death to the US" and "Death to Israel" are heard upon impact and subsequent crash of the aircraft.

The footage which was released by the Houthis Almasirah TV, also seemingly shows the blackened burned wreckage of the fighter jet scattered over a small area in al-Maslub District in the al-Jawf Governorate.

The Saudi-led coalition acknowledged the aircraft's crash in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency on Saturday.
