    Al Mibniah is a city located in the north of Yemen just next the boarder with Saudi Arabia. The old fortifed city was built around 600 AD and became and important muslim holy city during the Middle Ages. The Ottoman Empire conquered the city in 1516. After the WWI and the fall of Ottoman Empire, Al Mibniah became part of North Yemen and was affected by civil war of the sixties. Crude Oil was discovered in 1995 around the city, making it richer and richer.

    This city is inspired by Medina and Sanaa. After the loss of Yadmuz, I decided to build another Arabic city, i hope better than the previous one.
