Operation Long Axe
18-19 November 2017
Location: IVO Kangari Hills, Southern Province, Sierra Leone
SIGINT and HUMINT have now confirmed that a meeting took place between leadership elements of the Kangari Tigers militia and HVI Rasheed Sadeeki of the KOA. Exact details are as yet unconfirmed but it is assessed that the Tigers have agreed to work alongside Knights of Azear and Azearian State insurgencies, in exchange for weapons and manpower, to continue their fight against the government in Freetown.
Latest satellite imagery of the area around the Kangari Mountains has shown many of the militia camps have increased in size and it is thought they are preparing to attack towns along the Hinga highway, with a plan to capture Bo Town, the nation’s second city.
UK and US military assets diverted from a joint training exercise in the Gambia are being deployed to the southern province of Sierra Leone in an attempt to disrupt militia operations.
TF34 working alongside SI7 SOG will infiltrate the mountains to locate and destroy the enemy camps and disrupt enemy command and control.
