Their main objective is to oust the government of the current Chadian president Idriss Déby and then hold elections after a two-year interim perio[1] RDL has bases in eastern Chad and in the Darfur region of Sudan. On December 18, 2005, the RDL attacked Chadian troops stationed in the city of Adre, sparking the current Chad-Sudan War.
