Houthis said that they had intercepted a coalition warplane near the border with Saudi.

Spokesman Turki Al Malki for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen said on Wednesday that "Yemen Houthis claim of shooting down a coalition F-15 warplane is incorrect", according to the Saudi state news agency.

Yemen Houthis said on Wednesday that they had intercepted a coalition warplane near the border with Saudi Arabia.

"In reference to what the terrorist Iran-backed Houthi militia circulated that it has shot down a coalition air force (F-15) fighter jet is baseless and unfounded," Al Malki said.

"What was published today is a previous, failed attempt conducted on July 1, 2018. And what the terrorist Houthi militia published is a continuation of its deliberate falsification methodology," said Al Maliki in a statement, carried by Saudi Press Agency.
