The armed militia stated their attacks were in protest of the government of Sudan’s failure to protect local villagers from attacks by nomadic groups, and economic marginalization of the region.

Since that time the fighting has never stopped. 2004 In July of 2004, the African Union Mission in Sudan (AMIS) began deployment in the region.
