"In the run up to Mail's 2018 elections, communal violence - a longstanding feature of the political violence landscape - increased dramatically, reaching anew peak in October 2018*

There was an uptick in fighting between communal miltias in the run up to the July 2018 elections in Mali. Since the elections, violence against civilians by communal militias has been on the rise and is largely attributable to the activities of Dozo militias.
