███████████ are suspected of using routes to through ███ and ██████ to funnel resources to their fighters in the south by foot and boat. Due to the ███████ situation in the region, we are restricted to a bombing campaign as a response to these alleged activities.

 

As part of a ████████ operation, the ███████████████████ is currently in ███████████ conducting ███████████ missions throughout the area. Although in the past 3 months the ██████ have recorded almost ██████ of destroyed resources and over █████████████, their operations have been considered slow and inefficient. As such the ███

███████████has been attached as ██████████.

 

The ██ have been using ██████████████████████████. They have also directly attacked ████████ twice in the past month. Due to the amount of ██████ being moved through the area, various ████ zones have been set up around areas not covered by friendly forces.
