The article is devoted to the historical inquiry of the Dhofar Rebellion of 1963–1976 which was important stage of the historical development of the Sultanate of Oman. It has been stressed that the background of the rebellion determined by complex combination of political, economic and ethnic factors. The main reason for the support of the local mountain population of Karra and Kathiri for NDFLOAG (the National Democratic Front for the Liberation of Oman and the Arabian Gulf) was not revolutionary sentiments but ethnic problems. The Jebel Samkhan highlanders were not part of the tribal structure of Oman and had no place in the political elite.

After it Oman became a single state. The Dhofar Liberation Front remained an independent organization in Oman (based in London). It pursues the same policy but does not speak openly.
