It's a little complicated, but basically, I think, three awards issued by either two or three different states: one by 'North Yemen', one by 'South Yemen' and one by the united state just known as 'Yemen'.  I'll leave you to sort out which is which.

Yemen Arab Republic also known as North Yemen or Yemen (Sana'a), was a country from 1962 to 1990 in the northwestern part of what is now Yemen.

The People's Democratic Republic of Yemen , also referred to as South YemenDemocratic Yemen,  or the South Arabian Federation, was a socialist state in the southern and eastern provinces of the present-day Republic of Yemen.

It was united with the Yemen Arab Republic (commonly known as "North Yemen") on 22 May 1990 to form Yemen

I attach images of the two variations of the YAR wound badge which I purchased in Sana'a in the 1990's.
