Yesterday the enemy launched a rocket attack on our forces stationed at FOB Whiskey.
Intelligence reports have identified three rocket artillery (BM-21 Grad) units south of the city of Khirbet Ghazaleh in south Syria as the source of these attacks. Due to bad weather our drones lost contact of the artillery during the night. It is likley that they are still located in the area around the towns Khirbet Ghazaleh and Western/Eastern Garyiah.
Known enemy forces in the area consists of UAZ’s/KAMAZ’s, armed pickups (AAA) and a few BMPs.
QRF arrived at FOB Whiskey a few hours ago. SOF units operating north of our AO, no deconfliction needed.
All efforts should be made to minimize civilian casualties and avoid damage to infrastructure in the area.
NAI 1 and 2 consists of large built up area surrounded by wooded area. This gives short sighting/engagement distances but good masking oppurtunitys.
HA’s and BP’s are mostly flat desert with some wooded areas. This gives longer sighting/engagement distances but liming masking possibilities.
