There is a civil war in Yemen which last four years. There are separatists who want more control in the government.

This brings many problems between the separatists and the government. The two sides are a part of a coalition. However, their relationship is not very good.

Now, there is hope that the problems stop. The Yemeni government signs a deal with the separatists. The government wants to control the separatist soldiers. It wants to stop the fights.

Officials say that the deal can help end the civil war.

Difficult words: civil war (a war that people in a country fight against other people in that country), separatists (people who want to be independent from a country and they fight for it), government (a group of people who lead a country), coalition (a big group of different political groups that work together in a government).
