The Desert Dawn (明けの砂漠) is a resistance group that appears in the anime Mobile Suit Gundam SEED.
The guerrillas are led by Sahib Ashman and its members are recruited from nearby towns like Tassil, Moula, and the city of Banadiya. This rebel group of Arabs are mostly from Arab Sudan, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and Western Sahara. Their main rival was the ZAFT-occupied Northern Africa team who was led by Andrew Waltfeld. They were later assisted by the crew of the Archangel to free North Africa from ZAFT control.
