Irbid insurgency

2023-04-20 @ 19:30 - 22:00

A western coalition is in place in Israel, and a carrier group is stationed at sea. In the city of Irbid in Jordania a violent insurrection is in progress, creating a confusing situation with several fighting factions. Our intel suggest even parts of the Jordanian military forces might be involved on opposing sides. Joint command has decided to send in the cavalry in order to stop the fighting in the urban areas. Due to the confusing situation with some warlords supporting the western alliance, some violently opposing it and some remaining neutral, with little or no visual difference between them and uncertainty around the allegiance of every squads of Jordanian military forces in the area, joint command has issued orders to engage only elements that are openly hostile towards us.

The mission is straightforward but not simple; engage identified enemy targets with as little collateral damage as possible.

Joint command intelligence expects no high caliber AA units in Irbid, and none of the openly hostile factions have access to manpads or SAMs. However there are plenty of technicals with mounted machine guns and small arms on both sides.

Elements of the Jordanian air force may defect and try to engage our forces, but only light fighters or helicopters are available, all modern fighters are secured by troops loyal to the Jordanian government, who will not engage joint command forces.

Lastly the Jordanians and Syrians does not want us to stray too far into their airspace and them needing help with the ongoing insurrection is a big enough embarrassment as it is. Hence do not stray to far from the fighting area into the Jordanians or Syrians air territory since both have declared publicly that they retain the right to shoot down any fighter violating their airspace.
