Abdullah al-Sallal in a military display March 1963

Abdullah al-Sallal (January 9, 1917 – March 5, 1994) (Arabic: عبد الله السلال‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) was the leader of the North Yemeni Revolution of 1962. He served as the first President of the Yemen Arab Republic from 27 September 1962 to 5 November 1967.

Al-Sallal, the son of a Yemeni farmer, was born in the village of Sha'asan, Sanhan district, and his origins trace back to the Al Jawf tribes. His father died when he was at a young age. Al-Sallal joined the only orphanage in San'a known as the Orphan School, and it later became famous for raising many of Yemen's greatest patriots and some of the most influential politicians of that era. He was not a member of the social elite in Yemen, despite that, he was widely respected by the military community as a competent and brazen officer. He led the revolutionary forces that deposed King Muhammad al-Badr and deposed the Mutawakkalite Kingdom of Yemen. He presided over the newly founded Republic, with close ties to Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt which served as the YAR's strongest ally in the war against the Saudi Arabian-backed Mutawakkalite royalists that lasted into 1968. Yemen's President Abdullah al-Sallal negotiated with tribal leaders after the revolution to help cement the republic, he was later ousted in a bloodless coup led by Abdul Rahman Al-Iryani.

Six different men held the position of Prime Minister under as-Sallal, including al-Sallal himself three times. He held both titles from the formation of the republic until 26 April 1963, when he appointed Abdul Latif Dayfallah, as well as briefly in 1965 and from 18 September 1966 until the end of his presidency. Abdul Rahman al-Iryani, as-Sallal's successor to the presidency in 1967, served as Prime Minister in 1963 and 1964. Hassan al-Amri held the post three times.
