In Gall
   An oasis situated in southwestern Aïr at an altitude of 470 meters. It is 124 kilometers from Agadez, the capital of Aïr. Historically, it occupied a secondary caravan stop on the east-west route. Its claim to historical fame resides in the participation of local populations in the rebellion of Kaoucen against the French in 1916. The 1916 rebels were later brutally crushed by the French, and hundreds of notables were executed following the return of the French to Aïr. In 1969, at the height of the Sahel drought, the population stood at 20,000, of which 12,000 were nomadic. The original population consisted of 3,596 Kel Ahaggar, 2,417 Fulani, 1,677 Kel Fadey, 1,600 Kunta, and 1,032 Igdalen. The community itself numbers 2,000 people, but the large majority is employed in the salt pits of Teguidda n'Tesemt.
