United Nations Yemen Observation Mission

The UN Yemen Observation Mission (UNYOM) was established in 1963.

North Yemen entered into a state of civil war in 1962. Yemen had joined Egypt in 1958, and then in 1962, separated again, sparking the conflict.

To ensure that this conflict did not escalate into an international incident, the UN set up the UN Yemen Observation Mission.

Around 1963, Saudi Arabia and Egypt joined in the civil war. The task of UNYOM was to monitor Saudi Arabia and Egypt in order to make sure they did not tilt the conflict one way or another and avoided causing a potentially harmful dispute through that part of the Middle East.

The civil war ended in 1964 and UNYOM continued to watch and control the situation in Yemen while supervising disengagement of Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
