دار فور‎ DĀR FŪR
Status: Not democratic; not unitary.
Structure: Partially-organized collection of rebel groups under military rule.
Governing party: الجبهة الثورية السودان ɔal-Ĝabhaḧ ɔal-aŭrīaḧ ɔal-Sūdān (حركة تحرير السودان Harakaḧ Tahrīr ɔal-Sūdān ; حركة العدل والمساواة Harakaḧ ɔal-Cadl ŭaɔl-Musāŭāḧ ).
Heads of government: مني مناوي Min:ī Min:āŭī , عبد الواحد محمد نور Cabd ɔal-Ŭāhid Muham:ad Nūr (حتس HTS ); جبريل إبراهيم Ĝibrīl Ɔibrāhīm (حعم HCM ).
Assessment: A western insurrection against السودان ɔal-Sūdān , where fighting has persisted despite numerous peace agreements, and despite the 2005 peace agreement between and 2011 official separation of north and south. The جنجويد Ĝanĝaŭīd , backed by السودان ɔal-Sūdān North, have committed atrocities against the African inhabitants; around 100,000 have been killed. In 2006, the largest armed group in the revolt, the حتس HTS مناوي Min:āŭī , reached a peace agreement with السودان ɔal-Sūdān North, but the حعم HCM originally rejected the deal, as did the حتس HTS نور Nūr , with fewer fighters, but representing the largest ethnic group, the Fra. A drive by حعم HCM in 2008 captured part of metropolitan خرطوم Xartūm but was eventually driven back. In 2010, it agreed to a peace deal with السودان ɔal-Sūdān North, but was soon fighting again; in 2011, the leader of the حعم HCM , خليل إبراهيم Xalīl Ɔibrāhīm (brother of جبريل Ĝibrīl ), was killed in another advance on الخرطوم ɔal-Xartūm . Smaller rebel groups made peace with الخرطوم ɔal-Xartūm in 2011, but the main groups formed the جثس ĜS later that year.
