Saudi Fighter Jet Crashes in Yemen during Operation to Fight Houthi Rebels

Yemen’s Houthi Rebels Have Claimed Responsibility for the Crash


A Saudi fighter jet crashed in Yemen on Saturday, the official Saudi Press Agency said.

The Royal Saudi Air Force Tornado jet is reported to have crashed in northern al-Jawf province. The crash happened during an operation by the Saudi-UAE-led coalition to fight the Houthi rebels.

A spokesperson for the Houthi rebels had earlier released a statement saying it shot down the Tornado using an advanced surface-to-air missile.

In a separate statement, Houthi health officials said at least 30 civilians were killed in air raids carried out by the government forces.

The death toll could not be independently verified.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
