The Battle of Jumstraad took place on 7 April 2011 between Indokistan and Ntolian forces during the Indokistan-Ntolian War. It was a failed attempt of Ntolia to take over Indokistani territory, particularly the Farhangrad Building complex and the city of Jumstraad.
Shortly after declaring its establishment, Ntolia decided to wage a war against Indokistan, which it declared formally on 6 April 2011. At the same day, Ntolian forces attacked Farhangrad and the Indokistani national archives to seize national artifacts, but were pushed back by Indokistani guards. On the evening of 6 April, Ntolia issued a ultimatum, threatening a full-scale invasion if Indokistan refused to hand over the Indokistani Declaration of Independence.
The battle began at 14:00 Indokistani Time (UTC+7:00), when the Ntolian Army invaded Indokstan with intention to occupy Jumstraad and Farhangrad Building to create a power vacuum in Indokistan. The Indokistan Armed Forces took precautions against this: Badra Shidqi and Mustafa Hakim pledged to defend the city and took command of the armed forces, while leaders Farhan Abbas and Dicky L. K. were evacuated to a bunker near Farhangrad. In addition, the Indokistani Armed Forces set up several road blocks in Jumstraad, which was found to be effective to hinder Ntolia's advance.
In the early minutes of the battle, Ntolia managed to push back Indokistani forces and occupy portions of Jumstraad, but were pushed back shortly after 16:00 Indokistani Time.
The battle crushed the morale of Ntolian soldiers, and reduced the possibilities of a Ntolian victory during the war. After several attacks against Indokistan, Ntolia sent a letter requesting a ceasefire on 8 April, which was fulfilled by Indokistan, who also requested peace negotiations; however, the negotiation broke down, and the war raged on.
