Media: UAE plane crashed in Yemen, could be shot down by al-Qaida terrorists

31
The fallen 14 March in Yemen, the UAE Air Force fighter could be shot down by al-Qaeda fighters from the Strela air defense system, reports RIA News post The Independent.




Earlier it was reported that the cause of the collapse of the UAE fighter, which killed both pilots, was a technical failure of the machine.

According to a newspaper source, “the fighter was shot down by a ground-to-air missile fired from SA-7 MANPADS or a Soviet-made Strela.”

The author of the article notes that “since the zone of destruction of the complex varies in height from 15 to 1,5 thousands of meters, the Emirati fighter was most likely shot down when flying low enough to attack from a straggling flight based on the positions of terrorists”.

The newspaper suggests that the MANPADS "fell into the hands of terrorists from Bulgaria, which, after the collapse of the USSR, sold Soviet military equipment, including SA-7, to the countries of the Middle East."

However, a second source related to Saudi intelligence said the complex was taken over by terrorists in 2015 during attacks on Yemeni military bases. “Al-Qaeda confiscated a huge amount of equipment from bases in Yemen,” he said.

In addition, according to him, servicemen “loyal to both the former and the current president of Yemen, sell weapon to terrorists. "

          The Soviet troops constantly carried out this idea in 1941 when guns were carried on horses and boxes with shells were carried on the horse's back. A man just bought for protection. What's so funny.

      Oh, the terrorists no longer seize but confiscate.

        That's how little by little (with a quiet glan) everything is turned upside down! There the word will be altered, they will insert the same thing here and watch the reaction, will people say something indignant ?? No! No one said anything to this, so let's move on - more! And after a pancake it turns out that it turns out that they were not terrorists but very "nice and good" guys !!! And they were recorded as terrorists !!! Now an innocent word is written (CONFISK) tomorrow is that the fighters are righteous, etc. PPT window overtone in action!

          Here, the trick is not in this, but in the fact that anyone, in this case, the Hussites who do not agree with the opinion of the elect (in Yemen, this is the United Arab Emirates, SA, etc.) can be reckoned with al-Qaeda, regardless of whether they belong to it in reality or not. Do not agree with the USA? So putinoid or Kim's accomplice. Do not agree with the Saudis? So a member of al-Qaeda or IG. And it doesn’t matter that Turkey and the SA themselves support them, the main thing is to declare, and such a mark is difficult to erase.

            Well, even Abdullah 2nd began talking about Erdogan’s recklessness. Prior to that, he stood shyly on the sidelines, calling himself a friend of Russia and personally the GDP, which did not stop him from using, like the Turks, free oil from Daesh and treating ISIS bandits in his hospitals. Climbing into Iraq or Syria is too difficult for him, but shooting in Somalia is just that. Looks like that and invite to the winning cake.

          The fact is that it reported as written
          a second source related to saudi intelligence,

          Those. blabbed the word "confiscated" to Al Qaeda and recognized it as an official structure.

            I get it! Just see, they’re already trying to introduce into the consciousness of people what kind of official structures are there (al-Qaeda, etc.)! And after that, this rotten little thought will continue to inflate. And after all, there will be those who pick her up and scream everywhere and everywhere that they attacked innocent people and killed them, murderers such and such are not smeared dry.

      The newspaper suggests that MANPADS fell into the hands of terrorists from Bulgaria. hi

      While our “friends” from Bulgaria or from Ukraine will sell everything that can be sold, they will do it. And, perhaps, it will be an effective weapon, while our devices will use all the outdated rubbish of avionics after the collapse of the USSR. This is the real truth of jissy. love

    For this "news" I have everything.

    If somewhere something somehow needs to be attached to this Russia and to be spread in all European newspapers. Let's remember that a Kalashnikov assault rifle is shooting around the world!

      Yes? but in my opinion, the terrorists (at least the aggressors) flew on the plane. Kiev Donetsk also sometimes called terrorists.

    Alkaida Th beguiled? They are their own! Maybe the Houthis pushed the plane? The UAE is the allies of the Saudis, the Saudis are the "godfathers" of the Alkaids, and the Pope of the Alkaids of the United States, If comrade Kozyrev (exMID of Russia) had failed ....... l, at one time Yemen, the Russian Federation would have a good tool for keeping the Saudis in good places.

    Does Saudi Arabia and its partners seem to have learned a lesson in Yemen? Fighting is not the only modern weapon, but the fighting spirit of the fighters matters. Saudi soldiers, even in gold armor, will go into battle - this will not help them in the fight against the Holodrans

    For some reason I didn’t understand Al Qaeda is a product of Saudis and Yus, how they could bring down an airplane (from which it’s clear), but it’s not clear! Why am I asking this, it’s also illogical how the DPR or LPR shot down a Russian plane (the LPR and the DPR are not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings, in any case), an example is given to show how crazy it will be whoever sanctioned it ...

    "... On March 14, in Yemen, a UAE Air Force fighter could have been shot down by al-Qaeda militants from the Strela portable air defense system, .." And still have not figured out, and no one has confessed? Or were they shot down by mistake and dumped the neighbors?

    Of course, they are fighting in Yemen with the Houthis, and the planes are shot down by none other than Al-Qaeda.
