Dhamar, Harras of
"The lava fields surrounding the town of Dhamar are part of a volcanic field extending 80 km to the east that includes several stratovolcanoes and many youthful volcanic cones. Basaltic lava flows overlie older rhyolitic flows. Harras of Dhamar was the source of the only 20th-century eruption in the Arabian Peninsula, where possible explosive activity occurred in 1937."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
