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