Situation

Background Information
WE HAVE RECEIVED REPORTS THAT THE INDEPENDENT LIBERATION FRONT (ILF), A RADICAL, ARMED CRISTIAN GROUP HAS BEEN ACTIVELY RECRUITING PEOPLE IN THE TOWN OF BLOU AND BARTIN, LOCATED JUST SOUTH OF ELSAVILLE. IT APPEARS THE REGION IS CALM AND THERE HAVEN’T BEEN ANY REPORTS OF ARMED CONFLICT IN THE AREA. HOWEVER, WE KNOW THE ILF IS PRONE TO VIOLENCE AND THEREFORE CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN WHEN APPROACHING THE TOWN. THE UN COMMITTEE DIRECTING THE OPERATION HAS SET OUT THE NEXT OBJECTIVES FOR OUR FORCE.

Friendly Forces
1 X PLATOON SIZED GROUP OF BRITISH ARMY FORCES

Supporting Assets
UN LOGISTICAL SUPPORT ASSETS

Enemy Forces
THE INDEPENDENT LIBERATION FRONT REMAIN IN THE AREA. THEY ARE A GROUP OF ARMED RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISTS WHO ARE OPPOSED TO ANY FOREIGNERS AND THE UNITED NATIONS. THEY APPEAR TO BE PROSELYTISING IN THE REGION TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO JOIN THEIR GROUP. THE UN COMMITTEE HAS AUTHORISED OUR FORCES TO ATTEMPT TO ARREST ANY LEADERSHIP AND ARMED MEMBERS OF THE ILF. ANY ARMED RESISTANCE CAN BE MET WITH EQUAL FORCE. ATTEMPTS SHOULD ALSO BE MADE TO IDENTIFY AND TRACK DOWN THEIR LEADERSHIP. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT, IN THIS PART OF THE COUNTRY, MANY PEOPLE CARRY WEAPONS WHICH ARE LEFT OVER FROM THE CIVIL WAR OF 1975-2002. IT IS NOT UNCOMMON TO FIND A GOAT HERDER OR TRAVELLING MERCHANT ARMED WITH AN AUTOMATIC RIFLE. THIS DOES NOT MAKE THEM OUR ENEMY. WE ARE HERE TO PREVENT CONFLICT, NOT CREATE IT. USE CAUTION AND SOUND JUDGEMENT WHEN ATTEMPTING TO DISARM ANYONE. WE SHOULD ONLY DO THIS IF WE HAVE REASON TO BELIEVE THAT ALLOWING THEM TO BE ARMED POSES A DANGER TO US OR OTHER CIVILIANS.


Mission

Tasking
PRIMARY TASKING OUR FORCE IS TASKED WITH MOVING TO THE BLOU AND BARTIN AREA AND INVESTIGATING THE CLAIMS THAT THE ILF ARE RECRUITING THERE. THEY SHOULD ALSO AIM TO WIN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE PEOPLE IN THESE TOWNS, RENDER MEDICAL AND HUMANITARIAN AID WHERE NEEDED. THOSE IN NEED OF IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION SHOULD BE TRANSPORTED BACK TO THE FOB FOR TREATMENT BY UN DOCTORS. AS PER STANDING ORDERS, IN ALL LOCATIONS: A) ASSESS THE LEVEL OF THREAT IN THE AREA; B) ASSESS THE NEEDS OF THE GENERAL POPULATION AND PROVIDE SUPPORT WHERE POSSIBLE; C) GATHER HUMINT FROM CONVERSATIONS WITH THE GENERAL POPULATION TO IMPROVE OUR INTELLIGENCE SITUATION; AND D) GAUGE THE SUPPORT FOR UN OPERATIONS IN THE AREA. REPORT ALL INFORMATION AND INTELLIGENCE THROUGH THE CHAIN OF COMMAND. SECONDARY TASKING THERE IS A MOBILE PHONE TOWER IN THE AREA THAN NEEDS REPAIR. OUR FORCES SHOULD SECURE THE TOWER AND A UN ENGINEER WILL BE SENT OUT TO REPAIR IT ONCE IT IS DEEMED SAFE. OUR FORCES SHOULD ATTEMPT TO ENGAGE WITH MEN WORKING FOR MR. MIKE TO GAIN MORE INTELLIGENCE ON MR. MIKE’S OPERATIONS AND HIS WHEREABOUTS. WE SHOULD ALSO ATTEMPT TO REGAIN CONTACT WITH THE CCDF IF THEY ARE LOCATED.
