Also in the 1970s, the Iranian army backed by British mercenaries imposed a military solution in the Omani province of Dhofar, ending a decade-long insurgency backed by the USSR and Cuba. Earlier the Omani forces had managed to defeat the Ibadhi uprising led by the Bin Ali brothers in Jabal al-Akhdhar.

In the same decade, the Pakistanis managed to defeat a Soviet-backed Baluch insurgency led by Akbar Khan Bugti.

In Africa, the British militarily defeated a number of insurgencies but had to jettison their victories because of political sentiments at home and diplomatic pressure abroad.
