Rights groups have criticized the attacks because of its civilian casualties. Civilians died in five attacks carried out by small arms and heavy weapons.

A Houthi military spokesman had earlier said that air defences had brought down a usa drone.

"We are aware of reports of an attack by Iranian-backed Houthi forces on a USA drone". Since the decision by Trump in 2018 to abandon the Iran nuclear deal, Washington has attempted to use what it calls "maximum pressure" to change Iran's behavior and limit its nuclear ambitions.

[One of the US officials] said that while losing a drone was expensive, it was not unprecedented and it was unlikely to lead to any major response by the United States.

The US believes the missile was provided to Houthi rebels by Iran, said the official, who added that it was not immediately clear if the drone was being operated by the US military or the intelligence community.

Iran claimed that drone had trespassed over its territory, while the US argued it was in worldwide airspace. It said Iran helped the Yemeni rebels bring down the drone.
