The Italo-Yemeni Treaty of 1936 was activated in 1941, as Italian forces based in East Africa supported Yemeni incursions into British South Arabia. Yemeni expansionism culminated in the declaration of a Greater Yemen.

A series of attempted coups and counter-coups culminated in the declaration of a separate Yemeni Kingdom in the south of the country, centred on Mukalla. The young king Muhammad al-Badr and his prime minister Bruce Conde managed to rally the support of the Zaidi tribes of the northern highlands, as well as receiving arms from Iran.
