Civil War in South Yemen 1986

[ 1986 ]

Ultimately, Isma'il was found to be too dogmatic and rigid--in his analyses, policies, and methods of implementation--and was deposed in 1980. His successor, 'Ali Nasir Muhammad, instituted a far less dogmatic political and economic order. In January 1986, the various personal and ideological differences surfaced briefly in a violent civil war that left Isma'il and many of his supporters dead, resulted in the exile of 'Ali Nasir Muhammad, and brought to power a group of moderate technocrats led by Haydar Abu Bakr al-'Attas. It was this element of the YSP that undertook the negotiations that brought about the unity of the two Yemens.
