Example text

In Yemen, former president Saleh’s neopatrimonial rule discriminated systematically against some northern tribes but more so against the southern region, refusing to recognize the latter’s share of power after the 1990 unification and the 1994 war. The uprising against his regime was led mainly by Yemen’s youth, and ultimately forced his regional and international allies – Riyadh and Washington respectively – to forsake him to retain control over this strategic stretch of territory. South Yemen’s separatist groups, gathered loosely in the Southern Peaceful Movement (al-Hirak al-Silmi al-Janubi, or Hirak), view the Saudi-US brokered transition agreement as an attempt to preserve northern Yemen’s control over a marginalized south.
