The Altaia Insurgency was a military conflict in Lyoa between government forces and separatist militias advocating for the secession of the region. The conflict began in December 2019 after Kata Altaia rebels began attacking government forces in the area. The conflict expanded with the formation of the Patriotic Armed Forces of Altaia, a group which proclaimed the creation of a proto-state known as the "Republic of Altaia". Several more militia groups, such as the Coordination for a Referendum on Altaia's Independence (CORAI) and the Congress of the People of Altaia (CPA) have arisen as well, although their numbers were thought to be smaller than Kata Altaia. The conflict ended with the beginning of the Second Lyoan Civil War.
