Yemen’s Saba news agency, citing military sources, reported that the drone was shot down over the province’s Durihaimi district on Monday.
In a separate development, Saudi warplanes targeted al-Shabab city in Hudaydah.
The war on Yemen has so far killed thousands of civilians and destroyed the impoverished country’s infrastructure, exposing millions of people to starvation, lack of medicines and cholera outbreaks.
Some 8.4 million Yemenis are facing starvation as a result of the Saudi-led aggression, although the United Nations has warned that will probably rise to 14 million.
Three-quarters of impoverished Yemen’s population, or 22 million people, require aid.
