The Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters continued their advances against the pro-Saudi forces across Yemen, and inflicted heavy losses on their military hardware, including downing a spying unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in the Eastern part of Yemen.

"The Yemeni army's air defense system shot down a reconnaissance aircraft of the Saudi-led forces on al-Moshaja of Sirwah in Western Ma'rib province," the Arabic service of Sputnik news agency quoted an unnamed military source as saying.

There are no further details available on the incident.

In a relevant development earlier in October, a US-made state-of-the-art MQ9 drone was shot down in the Northern part of Sana'a city.

In a relevant development on Monday, a senior Yemeni commander announced that the Yemeni army and popular forces inflicted heavy losses and casualties on the pro-Saudi forces in Ma'rib, Ta'iz and al-Jawf provinces.

"Over 20 pro-Saudi forces were killed in an ambush of the Yemeni army and popular forces," Senior Ansarullah Commander Ali al-Houthi told FNA.

Meantime, several Saudi forces were killed in an artillery attack of the Yemeni popular forces on their gathering center in the surrounding areas of al-Waziya region.

Several military vehicles of the pro-Saudi forces were also destroyed in the attack.

On Sunday, a senior Yemeni military commander announced that Yemen's Dhale province is on the verge of being fully liberated as the pro-Saudi forces have sustained heavy losses and casualties in Ma'rib and al-Jawf provinces.

"The Yemeni army backed by popular forces purged terrorists from a large number of villages in the Southern and Western parts of Dhale province," Yemeni Army Commander Brigadier General Abdollah al-Setri told FNA.

The Yemeni commander reiterated that seizing back of Dhale province will be a heavy blow to the Saudi-led coalition.

Brigadier General al-Setri, meantime, noted that the Yemeni army and popular forces have inflicted heavy losses on the Saudi forces in Ma'rib and al-Jawf provinces.

He also said that the army and popular forces have purged terrorists from 245 square kilometers of areas in Southern Sana'a.
