The ADF is a serious threat to civilians in eastern DR Congo. Three days of national mourning were declared in August after the group killed 36 people in revenge for military operations in their area. Hundreds of its members are on trial in a military court for abuses that include the killings of at least 1,000 people in the past two years.

The invasion by foreign neighboring countries led to a partition and plunder sort of strategy. Angola was able to defeat the invasion by the Ugandans in the southwest while the Zimbabwe troops co-currently defended the Ndijili airport. These miscalculations on the part of Uganda and Rwanda, led to the eventual re-strategizing of their approach to that of backing rebels in the eastern part of the country in exchange of benefits arising form the illicit mineral trade. In places where there were no rebels, the invading countries would create them for purposes of occupation. For instance, the Congolese Rally for Democracy – RCD was a creation by Rwanda. On the other hand, the Congolese liberation Movement was a creation by Uganda. The notoriety of the invasion can be gauged by the occupying foreign countries giving concessions and mineral rights in the regions they were occupying.
