Operation Black Hand
Location: Aouzou, Tibesti Region, Northern Chad
In September 2016, an uprising in the small northern town of Aouzou led to the kidnapping of several high ranking officials, including Mahamat Zene Cherif, the Chadian representative to the United Nations.
Multiple attempts by Chadian government forces to restore law and order to the town have failed, and with the regular influx of extremist fighters and weapons from across Chad and neighbouring Libya, the situation in Aouzou has reached breaking point.
Aouzou is just one of several settlements in the north of Chad that has fallen under the control of terror groups such as the Knights of Azear and their more hard-line counterpart, so called Azearian State. Both groups favour kidnapping as a way to fund further actions and have been known to forcibly evacuate civilians in northern areas to use them as human shields.
Interim leader and head of the Chadian national security forces (GNNT) Major Fotmon, has once again granted special powers to SOTF-C currently working alongside the strained Chadian National Army. Coalition forces are to move back into Aouzou to ensure the safe recovery of any hostages and to restore law and order to the region.
- Conduct operations to secure Aouzou.
- Safely recover any hostages held within the town.
- Maintain control of Aouzou.
- Move hostages to secure locations.
