This chapter describes the recently concluded armed conflict in Mali between the government, supported by France, and the African-led International Support Mission in Mali (AFISMA) and the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) against the Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), Ansar Dine, and the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (MOJWA) and the National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (NMLA). It provides key casualty data gathered by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and the UN. The conflict began in May of 2006 when the Mali government engaged in skirmishes against a number of ethnic Touareg non-state armed group then under the umbrella of the 23 May Democratic Alliance for Change. Eventually, the rebel forces were able to overthrow the government which led to intervention by the international community.
