Yemen Rebels Take Responsibility For Shooting Down Moroccan Fighter Jet

Rebels in Yemen say they shot down a Moroccan fighter jet carrying out airstrikes against them.

The report came yesterday — just one day before a five day humanitarian cease fire was supposed to start.

Morocco’s military says the jet went missing last night.

Airstrikes led by Saudi Arabia increased today in Yemen’s capital.

Yemeni security officers say the shooting brought on a series of explosions that hit residential areas and started fires.
