The Verdusa Civil War was a conflict in Verdusa fought between the internationally-backed Verdusan government and Rajit rebels which lasted from February 1987 until September 1989. Verdusa had an extensive history of religious tensions, due to being the birthplace of Judaism and Christianity, and a holy land for Islam and Rajitism. Upon independence, the Verdusan constitution insured a power sharing agreement between the four religions and established Yerusalahm as a neutral "sacred" city. Though widely accepted by most of Verdusa's population, fundamentalist Rajits long opposed the deal, and in 1987 Rajit military officers carried out an attempted coup against the Verdusan government, tried to capture Yerusalahm, and expanded into an insurgency under the Rajit Liberation Army, backed by the Rajihat and Behinian governments. After the CCA Security Council issued calls for a ceasefire and the rebels ignored the deadline, CCA peacekeeping forces largely consisting of Emmirian and San Martinan troops were sent to back the Verdusan government. By 1989, the rebels had been widely defeated and the conflict quelled, aside from sporadic and rare attacks. The war proved to be a case of successful use of peacekeeping missions.
