MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The statement said that there were attempts by some parties to distort facts by sharing inauthentic images of the crash online, according to the Morocco World News website.
Earlier this week, the Houthi rebels, who have been fighting Yemeni government forces in recent months, claimed to have shot down a Moroccan F-16 fighter that was part of the Saudi-led coalition.
Last month, the air campaign was replaced with a new operation focusing on counter-terrorism efforts and a political solution to the crisis, but airstrikes continued.
A five-day humanitarian ceasefire, which is subject to renewal, began in Yemen on Tuesday night, after repeated calls from the United Nations for a pause in the hostilities.
According to UN estimates, some 650 civilians have been killed and 1,300 others injured in Yemen since the Saudi-led coalition of mainly Gulf countries began the air campaign.
