    Yemeni Government Strikes Deal with Tribesmen and Begin to Repair Pipelines

    Yemen began repairing its main Maarib oil pipeline and power lines on Tuesday after reaching a deal with tribesmen to stop attacking the country's infrastructure.

    The Yemeni army launched an offensive on Sunday against tribesmen suspected of repeatedly blowing up the main oil export pipeline and attacking power lines.

    "According to an agreement between Maarib's governor and tribal leaders, the military campaign was halted and the technical teams were allowed in to fix the oil pipeline and electricity lines."

    Does anyone have any idea what this 'deal' might have been?

    This article states that the previous president paid the tribesman to remain peaceful, yet the current president didnt want to do that. I wonder if he cracked and decided to begin paying them.
