Turks in Yemen (Turkish: Yemen Türkler), also known as Yemeni Turks, refers to the ethnic Turks who live in Yemen.


The majority of today's Yemeni Turks are the descendants of the Ottoman Turkish colonizers who began to migrate to the region as part of the expansion of the Ottoman Empire, which controlled, at least nominally, the region for over 300 years. The Yemen Eyalet (province) of the Ottoman Empire covered much of modern Yemen.


Today, estimates of the Turkish community in Yemen range from more than 10,000 to 100,000[1] About 6,000 live in Sana'a.[2]
