2 Days ago a refugee ship coming from the town of MISURTI radioed SOS after hitting a sea-mine.
HMS Northumberland responded to the emergency signal and deployed boats to assist in the rescue.
However LUBAYAN government forces set up a trap. Using a fishing boat as a spotter, they fired 2 batteries of art.-missiles at the frigate and scored several hits.
Subsequently 2 crewmen from the RN and NGO employees from the refugee ship where captured and detained.
The captured sailors where paraded on TV and their use as human shields against further NATO air-raids was threatened.
This forced western governments to attempt a daring rescue operation, and provide for regime change while we are at it.
The garrison of MISURTI(an Inf. BN + 1 tank company) has virtually disintegrated. The northern part of town is held by rebel forces, who MIGHT be at friendly terms with NATO.
The airport, old town and most of the harbor is held by loyalist troops and irregulars. In the south of the city are the army barracks, G2 believes the hostages to be there.
The airport is guarded by loyal paramilitary police units and AA-assets.
At midnight German DSO units have secured the fishing village of LATAR, just north of the city. The landing bridges there will enable us to deploy light and medium forces.
Our tanks are ready to deploy, but we have to secure the deep water harbor of MISURTI to get them ashore.
South of the city, a light Cav. raiding team has been deployed using A400Ms; landing on an abandoned desert-airfield. They are to move towards the barracks to get out the hostages.
A SOF team was deployed by submarine 18 hours ago, they monitoring the target and will strike as soon as the Cav. arrives
