The Saudi-led military coalition, which is launching airstrikes against Houthi rebels in Yemen, sealed off Yemen after Saudi Arabia intercepted a ballistic missile launched by Houthi rebels toward the Saudi capital city of Riyadh in early November.
An official statement blamed Sunday's crash on a "technical failure" but the Yemeni rebel-run al-Masirah television says the British-made Tornado fighter jet was hit while flying in Yemeni airspace over the northern province of Saada, which borders Saudi Arabia.
"The Arab Coalition Forces Command implemented a private joint operation in participation of air and land forces to evacuate two pilots to Saudi Arabia", the spokesman added.
The political party, previously led by former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who was killed in December 2017, described the step as an "attempt to hijack and control the GPC with an aim to justify the policies of robberies, crimes and killings imposed by Houthi militias on party members".Читайте также: Real Madrid loses Ramos for injury
Aburas, 65, will lead the GPC until its next general assembly, a date for which could not yet be set "because of the current difficulties", a statement said.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition, in a bid to restore power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
The almost three years into Yemen's civil war have killed over 10,000 Yemenis, mostly children, and displaced 3 million others, creating one of the world's worst humanitarian crises.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
