The rebellion was fought for two reasons: Opposition to the extension of telegraph lines through their territory, and the unmet demand that the sons of their leaders held hostage in Hodeida, Bayt al-Faqih and other localities be released from prison.[2]
The uprising began in February 1909.[1] In response, an Ottoman Force advancing from Zabid captured a Zaraniq stronghold nearby Husayniyah, but was ambushed[2] on 23 February near Beit-el-fakih[1] after when it tried to link up with another Ottoman Force to the south.[2] On 7 March, the Ottomans defeated the Zaraniq near Husayniyah, killing 80.[1] Upon receiving reinforcements, the Ottomans renewed the offensive, but the fighting was inconclusive.[2] In February 1910, the Ottomans ambushed a Zaraniq force, killing 750.[1] The Ottomans refused to offer the Zaraniq amnesty until they disarmed; it's unclear if this offer was accepted.[1]
