III. SITUATION

"The British Armed Forces regretfully announce the death of Afghan National Army commander Umar Az, who was killed in a confrontation between the commander and members of the British armed forces stationed in the area trying to disarm a captured high value target. In the struggle the firearm accidentally discharged and commander Az sustained injuries which resulted in the death of the commander.
The British units in the region and accompanying ANA units are now undergoing operation changes to ensure that a situation like this does not reoccur."


- 16AA, Battalion HQ

   

   

After the death of commander Az, the already fragile relationship between 16AA and the ANA, ANP and Civilian population is rendering close to non existent. As such all operations in the area have been temporarily suspended. No direct threats have been made against NATO units in the region by local forces, as such Battalion HQ is currently unwilling to compromise the ROE and expresses extreme caution when identifying and engaging targets.

Until relations with the local forces can be re-established and strengthened, Battalion HQ is unwilling to conduct any forward operations, but instead direct the main effort towards rebuilding relationships in controlled areas.
