Pacification of North Yemen circa 1919-1934

[ 1919 - 1934 ]

In the north, Imam Yahya had consolidated his own hold on the country: he had succeeded in bringing the Shafi'i areas under his administrative jurisdiction and had subdued much of the intertribal feuding. In an effort to enhance the effectiveness of his campaigns against the tribes and other fractious elements, the imam sent a group of Yemeni youths abroad (to Iraq) to learn modern weaponry and techniques. These students were eventually to become the kernel of domestic opposition to the imam's policies.
