Insurgency in Ogaden 1995-2008

[ 1995 - 2008 ]

The insurgency in Ogaden, waged by the separatist Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) in Ethiopia's Somali region, began in 1995 and ended in 2008. Originally an accepted political party which contributed three Presidents of the Somali Region after the ruling Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front expelled them from power, the ONLF began a guerrilla war to promote their goals. For many years, the remoteness of the Somali Region led to the conflict being ignored by the international media, until several high-profile attacks in 2007: the attack on the Chinese oil site at Abole and attacks in Jigjiga and Dhagahbur.
