Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on the United Nations Observation Mission in Yemen (UNYOM), a peacekeeping mission deployed by the UN Security Council in Yemen from July 1963 to September 1964 to manage cross-border intervention against the background of rising secular nationalism. After providing an overview of the civil war in Yemen, the article outlines UNYOM’s mandate and evaluates its operational successes and failures, particularly in terms of implementation of the “identical terms of disengagement” agreed by Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
