The Arab Kingdom of Yemen declared in Sana'a with the overthrow of the Mutawakkalite monarchy. The Mutawakkalite loyalists, supported by Iran, managed to consolidate their control over North Yemen, especially the Zaidi-dominated highlands. This left the separatists in control of around half of Yemen, stretching from the cities of Taiz and Mocha in the west to the cities of Shihr and Mukalla in the east.
