Situation

Background Information
LAST NIGHT’S DISCOVERY OF A MASS GRAVE IN AN ILF CAMP HAS RAISED UN FORCES IN THE REGION TO HIGH ALERT. WHILST WE SUSPECTED THAT THERE WERE POSSIBLE GROUPS COMMITTING WAR CRIMES, THIS WAS THE EVIDENCE THAT WAS NEEDED TO CONFIRM OUR SUSPICIONS. WE HAVE BEEN TASKED WITH URGENTLY MOVING THE POPULATION IN THE REGION OF THE ILF CAMP TO A PROTECTED LOCATION AND WITH SECURING THE SITE OF THE MASS GRAVE FOR PROPER INVESTIGATION WHICH WILL BEGIN IMMEDIATELY. A UN EXPERT ON WAR CRIMES IS BEING FLOWN IN TO OUR LOCATION AND WILL JOIN THE UNIT BEFORE DEPARTURE. HE WILL PROVIDE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO SET UP THE PROCESSING FACILITY AND INVESTIGATION BASE OF OPERATIONS. HE SHOULD BE PROVIDED WITH ALL THE SUPPORT BY OUR ENGINEERS. EARLY INTERROGATION OF THE CAPTURED ILF MEMBERS HAS REVEALED THAT THERE IS ANOTHER ILF CAMP LOCATED NEARBY THE MASS GRAVE. AN INFORMANT IS WILLING TO TAKE US TO THE LOCATION IN EXCHANGE FOR HELP IN FINDING HIS BROTHER, WHO HE BELIEVES MAY HAVE BEEN INJURED BY THE ILF IN ONE OF THE TENT CAMPS WE WILL BE RELOCATING. WE SHOULD LOCATE HIS BROTHER, AND ONCE FOUND, USE HIS INTEL TO FIND THE REMAINING ILF CAMP.

Enemy Forces
THE INDEPENDENT LIBERATION FRONT, A GROUP OF ARMED RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISTS ARE NOW CONSIDERED THE MAIN OPFOR. THEY ARE HOSTILE TO THE UNITED NATIONS AND ARE PROSELYTISING HEAVILY IN THE REGION TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO JOIN THEIR GROUP. THEIR LEADER IS KNOWN ONLY AS “MOSES” AND IS A PRIORITY TARGET FOR CAPTURE SHOULD HE BE ENCOUNTERED. ALL EFFORTS MUST BE MADE TO CAPTURE HIM ALIVE. 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 THE FOLLOWING: ESTABLISH A HASTY PROCESSING FACILITY TO TEMPORARILY ACCOMMODATE ALL THE PEOPLE FROM THE TENT CAMPS. MOVE TO ALL THE TENT CAMP LOCATIONS AND PROVIDE AID TO THE PEOPLE THERE. MOVE THEM TO THE TEMPORARY PROCESSING FACILITY SO THAT UN PERSONNEL CAN FULLY ASSESS THEM AND PROVIDE MEDICAL AID. TRANSPORT THE UN WAR CRIMES EXPERT TO THE SITE OF THE MASS GRAVES AND SECURE THE LOCATION SO HE CAN BEGIN HIS INVESTIGATION. SET UP AN INVESTIGATION FACILITY AS PER THE UN EXPERT’S SPECIFICATIONS. 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 INVESTIGATE REPORTS OF MORE ILF PRESENCE IN THE REGION.

Execution

Commander's Intent
THE INTENT OF THIS MISSION IS TO PROVIDE HUMANITARIAN AID TO CIVILIANS, ASSIST THE WAR CRIME EXPERT AND TO FURTHER INVESTIGATE THE ILF PRESENCE IN THE AO.

Tasks and Sequencing
STAGE 1 OSCAR AND XRAY WILL MOVE TOGETHER TO CRUZAR THROUGH THE CRUZAR-RONGO ROAD. SOUTH OF CRUZAR, XRAY WILL FIND A SUITABLE LOCATION FOR A TENT CAMP AND WILL SET UP A TENT FACILITY AT THIS LOCATION FOR THE PROCESSING OF THE INTERNALLY DISPLACED PEOPLE. WHEN THIS FACILITY IS SUFFICIENTLY SET UP, XRAY WILL MOVE TO SECURED CAMPS TO ASSIST ASSESSMENTS AND TO TRANSPORT CIVILIANS BACK TO THE PROCESSING FACILITY. OSCAR WILL CONTINUE ON ROUTE RUM UNTIL THEY REACH THEIR BREAKOFF POINT. BOTH TEAMS WILL PASS THROUGH ALPHA, BUT THE CAMP ASSIGNMENTS ARE AS FOLLOWS: OSCAR 1-1 IS ASSIGNED CAMPS ALPHA AND DELTA. OSCAR 1-2 IS ASSIGNED CAMPS BRAVO AND CHARLIE. AT ALL THESE CAMPS, TEAMS SHOULD BRIEFLY ASSESS THE CIVILIANS' SITUATION AND GATHER INTEL ABOUT THE CIVILIANS, THEIR SITUATIONS, ILF AS WELL AS THE GENERAL AREA. BE ALSO ON THE LOOKOUT OF THE BROTHER OF OUR INFORMANT. BE ADVISED THAT CAMPS ALPHA, BRAVO AND CHARLIE ARE CONSIDERED SAFE AT THIS TIME, WHEREAS DELTA IS OUTSIDE OF OUR GUARANTEED SAFETY ZONES, AND OSCAR 1-1 SHOULD BE EXTRA VIGILANT MOVING INTO THIS AREA. STAGE 2 WHEN ALL AFOREMENTIONED CAMPS HAVE BEEN ASSESSED, BOTH TEAMS WILL RECONVENE AT RP 1, AND OSCAR WILL AS A PLATOON PROCEED TO CAMPS ECHO AND FOXTROT, COMPLETING SIMILAR TASKING. DUE TO THE PERCEIVED HOSTILITY IN THE AREA, THESE CAMPS WILL BE COMPLETED TOGETHER. STAGE 3 AS ECHO AND FOXTROT HAVE BEEN SECURED AND ASSESSED, WE WILL MOVE TO THE ILF CAMP AND RE-SECURE THE AREA. XRAY WILL ESTABLISH AN INVESTIGATION FACILITY AND CORDON OFF THE MASS GRAVES AT THIS CAMP FOLLOWING THE GUIDANCE OF THE UN WAR CRIMES EXPERT. STAGE 4 AT THIS STAGE, WE WILL ATTEMPT TO LOCATE A SECOND ILF CAMP IN THE VICINITY BASED ON THE TESTIMONY AND GUIDANCES OF AN INFORMANT. THIS IS PERCEIVED AS A HIGH-RISK TASK, AND ALL SOLDIERS ARE ASKED TO BE AT THEIR HIGHEST ALERT LEVELS.
