Sakaraha is a town and municipality in Atsimo-Andrefana Region, south-western Madagascar.On 31 January 2007, Saudi terrorist Mohammed Jamal Khalifa was murdered by 25 to 30 armed men while visiting a gemstone mine he owned in Sakamilko, near the town of Sakaraha. He had recently called in local police to evict people who had been working the gem mine in his absence. Though all his belongings had been stolen there is some conjecture that the death was politically motivated. Khalifa's family came to believe that he was assassinated by operators from the Joint Special Operations Command.GeographySakaraha is situated along route nationale No. 7 (Tuléar-Fianarantsoa) at 134 km from Tuléar, 64 km from Andranovory and 84 km from Ilakaka.EconomyNatural gas was discovered near Sakaraha by Madagascar Southern Petroleum Company (MSCP) in 2011.
