Know your Yemeni soldiers.

Republican Guards, Special Forces, First Armored Division, and the Military Forces all used to wear separate uniforms. Not anymore. The unification of Yemeni army uniforms--announced this week--is an integral step towards the reconstructing of Yemeni army, following the fracturing and infighting which occured during the uprising of 2011.

This move is just the latest in a series of military restructures announced by President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi, which has included the disbanding of the First Armored Division and Republican Guards and the formation of seven new military regions in late April of this year.
