      vi. WHITE FORCES

  • Attitude towards BLUFor: Neutral to Hostile - The area we are operating in is a known stronghold for En fighters and houses the highest ranking HVTs. There is no evidence to suggest that any of the locals are not loyal to the INS force. With this, all CIVPOP acting in a suspicious manner are to be regarded as potential dickers at the very least.

'Clearing through compounds will be conducted as per ROE. Normal sweeps are to be adhered to at first including GREEN/AMBER entry on any building to be cleared as per ICs discretion. If En. action is known from a position to be cleared then ROE dictates you are permitted to clear as per RED entry.'
