A likely US drone carrying a top-secret geolocation system has been shot down over the rebel-held central Yemeni province of Marib, local media has reported.

The unmanned drone was shot down late on Tuesday by Houthi rebels in the Sirwah district, the Houthi-run SABA News Agency alleged.

"The air force and popular committees managed to down a drone belonging to the Saudi-US aggressors," an unnamed military source told the pro-rebel outlet.

Local media released alleged images of the downed drone in flames, including pictures of the GILGAMESH geolocation system used by the US military's Joint Special Operations Command in its long-running drone war in Yemen.

"CLASSIFIED SECRET WHEN KEYED," read a warning on an alleged piece of wreckage. On another piece, the word "GILGAMESH" is clearly inscribed.

According to 2014 report in The Intercept, the US has used a complex system of electronic surveillance codenamed GILGAMESH as the primary method to locate targets for lethal drone strikes in Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

"Under the [GILGAMESH] program, a specially constructed device is attached to the drone. As the drone circles, the device locates the SIM card or handset that the military believes is used by the target," the report said.

An unnamed military source told Turkish state media that the downed plane was "a large unmanned Phantom" carrying missiles. The source did not confirm whether the war plane belonged to the US air force.

Last month, a US drone strike killed two suspected al-Qaeda members in southern Yemen last month, a day after elite US forces killed 14 suspected militants in a nearby province.

The unmanned aircraft struck a vehicle in Bayhan district, on the border between Shabwa and Marib provinces, killing two people on board.

In December, pro-Houthi media claimed that a Saudi surveillance drone was brought down after by rebel fighters after flying over a Houthi military facility in Yemen's Jizan province.

Yemen's 20-month-old conflict has killed more than 10,000 people and wounded nearly 37,000, the United Nations says.

The Iran-backed Houthi rebels overran the capital Sanaa and other parts of the impoverished country in September 2014. It prompted a Saudi-led Arab military coalition to intervene six months later in support of President Abd-Rabbo Mansour Hadi.

Al Araby is a comedy website...stuff they post is absolute garbage even from humor standards..
 
Has any one ever heard Iran-Contra Affair. Well this is the perfect example of it.
 
For the same news some Arab channels claim a MQ-9 reaper was shot down by the the Saudi led coalition South of Marib city.. UAE Patriot missiles are known to be in Marib so it is quite a conflicting news..
Here is something for you to enjoy on.

The NSA geolocation system used by JSOC is known by the code name GILGAMESH. Under the program, a specially constructed device is attached to the drone. As the drone circles, the device locates the SIM card or handset that the military believes is used by the target.
 
Completely irrevant item , may not benefit anyone , however
"Gilgamesh" is associated old civilization of Iraq

Just recalled I might have came across this item before

One of the creatures in the image is Gilgamesh, now in literature , this creature was a demigod, human-god Hybrid

As some of the past Iraq civilizations have stories such as Sumarions etc

bloody hell so baphomet was first conceived in ancient Iraq! i have learnt something new today. So satanic worship is that old.
 
Gilgamesh was regarded as superhuman. In the Epic he is said to be 11 cubits (approximately 18 feet) tall, and his punt poles were each 60 cubits long. The king-list says that he reigned for 126 years.

http://www.encyclopedia.com/literat...and-folklore/folklore-and-mythology/gilgamesh (I know the website says folklore and mythology, but all legends hold some truth behind them, which has been distorted by the passage of time.)

Gilgamesh was born in Iraq. He was King of Uruk located in Iraq. He is also known as "King of the World" and "King of Assyria". (check the above link for more exciting info)

There is also a really fascinating episode on the TV show Ancient Aliens that goes into depth on facts backed by ancient artifacts found, that could prove that Gilgamesh may have actually existed!

To see the name Gilgamesh on a military machine is very interesting. Why would the name of an ancient Demi-God/Alien be engraved on a drone?
