REPUBLIC OF YEMEN - al-Jumhūrīyah al-Yamanīyah

Republic of Yemen (الجمهورية اليمنية al-Jumhūrīyah al-Yamanīyah), is an Arab country in Western Asia, occupying the southwestern to the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. Yemen is the second largest country in the peninsula, occupying 527,970 km2 (203,850 sq mi). The coastline stretches for about 2,000 km (1,200 mi). It is bordered by Saudi Arabia to the north, the Red Sea to the west, the Gulf of Aden and Arabian Sea to the south, and Oman to the east. Although Yemen's constitutionally stated capital is the city of Sana'a, the city has been under rebel control since February 2015. Because of this, Yemen's capital has been temporarily relocated to the port city of Aden, on the southern coast. Yemen's territory includes more than 200 islands; the largest of these is Socotra.





Getting postcards and letters become very rare and difficult now a days because of the political situations. Luckily my beautiful covers with Arab Postal Day 2012 stamps traveled and safely reached in my hand. My good friend Sumaih sent these beautiful covers. She requested for perfect postmark, unfortunately the postal clerk tried to make it again clear but it became double postmark. Thank You very much Sumaih for the perfect covers.
