Lieutenant-Colonel Ibrahim el-Hamdi (1943 - October 11, 1977) was the leader of a military coup d'etat in Yemen Arab Republic that overthrew the regime of President Abdul Rahman al-Iryani on June 13, 1974. After the revolt, he was President of the Military Command Council that governed the country. During his rule, he cemented the central government's control over the country, planned on ending tribal loyalty, and Yemen's medieval social classes by proclaiming all Yemenis as equal, He also improved relations with Saudi Arabia. Under El-hamdi's administration Yemen enjoyed the most prosperous ecomomic boom in its history, as he was responsible for a civil engineering endeavour that would rival that of any country. El-Hamdi's civil and economic policies helped bring Yemen into the 21st Century by building hundreds of new schools and eleven hospitals countrywide as well as the paving of more than 2,000 roads.show more
