The Insurgency in the Sangha province was a rebellion initiated by the Congo Liberation Army (CLA) in June 2017 in the northwestern province of Sangha of the then—Republic of the Congo. President Neo Baako deployed the Republic of the Congo Armed Forces, but they were inadequately trained and equipped. The CLA quickly overtook the western half of the province, using the city of Souaké as their headquarters. That caused President Baako to merge the country with the Democratic Republic of the Congo, creating the United Republic of the Congo (URC). Afterwards, the FARUC (military of the URC) quickly pushed back the rebel forces. They were defeated after the fall of Souaké in January 2018, with the help of troops from nearby Cameroon.
