  5. THIS DOCUMENT IS CONSIDERED TS/SCI, UNAUTHORIZED DISSEMINATION OF THIS DOCUMENT IS PUNISHABLE WITH A PRISON SENTENCE OF UP TO 10 YEARS, A LARGE FINE, OR BOTH.  Analysis provided by Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, and National Security Agency. All members concur with this assessment. HUMINT and OSINT have confirmed that Colonel El Hadj Ghaly, aka "Attila", has conducted a public execution of three of the recent POWs US forces have turned over to his custody in the region. There are several indications that at least two of those executed were tortured before their deaths. Leadership in Ouagadougou is officially unaware of the actions occurring in Kujari at the hands of Ghaly, but private discussions with HUMINT sources there have determined that a sizable portion of the military leadership is aware of these acts and are giving tacit, and in some cases, overt support. The civilian leadership is also aware, however, most consider Ghaly's actions justified or a harsh necessity. The minority who object to them are without significant influence and are unlikely to take any action regarding them. There is a growing sense from lower-ranking sources that Ghaly has been granted free reign so long as Lingani, aka "Uldin", is defeated before he gains too much legitimacy in the eyes of the people. Recommendations: Conduct proper interrogations of POWs before handing them over to Ghaly if possible. Ghaly is unlikely to be receptive to the questioning of his methods well and may withhold cooperation if pressed on the subject. From Central Intelligence Agency

  8. Western Forces Reportedly Operating in Libya Grand Central Times - March 30, 2020 Battles in the streets of Misrata are unfortunately common for the remaining residents of the town, with the city having been fought over numerous times by the warring factions of Libya’s ongoing civil war. But while the gunfire isn’t new, the participants appear to be. Reports from several witnesses in the city state that the most recent spate of violence involved several Westerners fighting with one of the rebel groups who hold a large portion of the town. When the shots died down, civilians in the area found a large group of rebel soldiers dead, and the town’s harbormaster missing. Interviews with two of the residents, have suggested that the harbormaster may have been involved in smuggling operations, but Grand Central Times has been unable to independently confirm these allegations. Pictured: Fighting in Misrata several days ago. The fighting across Libya has peaked in recent months as the UN-backed government dissolved into infighting over the failure to reach a deal on future elections. Rebel groups have taken advantage of the lack of authority to renew their attempts to carve out their own lands or fill the power vacuum for themselves. The reports of Westerners engaged in the fighting have raised concerns as to whether there is a foreign intervention underway in the failed state, or if this is a rise in the use of mercenaries in the civil war. Russian mercenaries have previously been confirmed operating in the region, but their actions have largely been limited to training and other second-line duties. Grand Central Times will continue to follow this story as it develops. By Archibald Wavell Grand Central Times

Limited reports from sources on the ground indicate that the SCP appears to be invisible to at least the naked eye, and is believed to be stronger than an average human as an emergency call to the local police included reports of skulls and spines being torn out of bodies. Several pairs of thermal optics are being deployed to MTF Omega-2 "SNAFU" as they move into the area, along with heavy caliber weapons, large-capacity magazines, and explosives. Description: SCP-2662 is an unknown entity at this time, with no detailed description available. This anomaly is believed to be responsible for the destruction of a monastery in the jungle and possibly other villages in the area that local authorities have been unable to communicate with.

  18. American Crew Believed to be Held Hostage by Pirates Off Indonesia Coast ADA News - March 7th, 2020 The Panamanian-flagged cargo ship MV Europa Flame has been reported as seized by pirates off the Northern coast of Sumatra in Indonesia. The vessel, owned by the Everblue Marine Corporation based out of the Netherlands, was transiting through the Malacca Strait when it was boarded. The company has issued a statement that the pirates had claimed that the American crew was alive, though the pirates were demanding a multi-million dollar ransom before they would release them. It is unclear what the current status of the crew is, but previous hostage-takings have indicated that the crew is not in the best of conditions. Everblue Marine has also stated it is working with its partners in the region to ensure a peaceful return of the crew and are in contact with the US government, while the crew's families are calling for all those involved to do everything in their power to achieve a safe return of the crew. Pictured: The Europa Flame docked in Tanoa last September The Strait of Malacca, where the ship was hijacked, sees roughly 40% of the world’s trade go through its waters, making it one of the world’s most important economic lifelines. Piracy has become a renewed threat to the region, as some of the pirate groups have become more organized and dangerous, while the navies of the region have been preoccupied with the rise of China. At least 60 vessels were attacked last year and the numbers are expected to rise this year as well. Viewed as a response to this recent hijacking, insurance rates for vessels traveling through the region will be increased at the end of this quarter. By Claude Auchinleck ADA News
  19. Chernarus: A Nation on Life Support Grand Central Times - March 1st, 2020 Though the Chernarussian Civil War ended in a victory for the Republic of Chernarus and their supporters in the West, the country has little to show for it. Its economy before the war was based largely on lumber with hopes for tourism and a small manufacturing base in the eastern half of the country to expand economically. While the pillar of the Chernarussian economy, the lumber industry, managed to survive relatively unscathed, tourism has dried up over fears of unexploded ordnance, and the fledgling manufacturing sector has collapsed due to the bombs that did detonate. With a substantially larger portion of the country’s GDP going towards rebuilding its exhausted and battered military this year, social programs have taken cuts and efforts to rebuild are slowing as Western aid dries up. President Nickolai Ivanovich, who came into power shortly before the civil war, is facing calls to do something to fix the lingering and growing problems plaguing the country, but the already tenuous hold on power he maintained during the war has started slipping as political parties resumed their bickering and partisanship once the conflict ended. Those who aligned with the DPRC have also made life difficult for the Chernarussian government, though they have so far only used non-violent methods after their military defeat. Pictured: Belgian peacekeeping troops on patrol in Chernarus The nations of the West, who made a large show of support coming to the aid of the small Eastern European nation when it appeared Russia would invade during instability, have largely abandoned the region. A small Belgian peacekeeping force is all that remains of the several NATO divisions that were fighting in Chernarus not five months ago, and much of the foreign aid that was promised is stuck in limbo in a dozen legislatures. The US maintains a watchful eye on the region, as flight data shows near-constant patrols of fighter jets over the ROC and Ukraine, but many at home are unwilling to commit more forces to a country that they no longer see as vital to containing Russia. The Russian bear also seems to have lost interest in Chernarus, at least for the time being. At the moment, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been most vocal about what it calls “Eastern Interference” in the elections of Kazakhstan, an ally of Russia since the Fall of Communism, who has just elected what Russian media has taken to calling a “Beijing Puppet”. The infighting on the political stage in Russia has also taken its toll though not publicly, as the quiet reassignments of several advisors and the apparent suicide of one general can attest. At the end of the day, however, this means that Chernarus will be left to fend for itself in a world that does not take kindly to those on their own. By Anthony McAuliffe Grand Central Times
  20. Boko Haram Remains a Threat in Sub-Saharan Africa ADA News - February 11th, 2020 While Boko Haram has in recent months suffered a series of defeats in Nigeria, its presence in Sub-Saharan Africa has not diminished as much as some had hoped. It appears that the terrorist group has taken advantage of Islamic State’s setbacks in Afghanistan and Syria, offering the terrorists a safe haven and a promise of a renewed Caliphate. The leadership of Boko Haram has also switched tactics, embracing a more structured system of control in their occupied territories and focusing on securing weapons and funds. Pictured: Aftermath of the bank heist in Djibo In an apparent demonstration of that change in tactics on Monday, it was reported that the Coris Commonwealth Bank in the city of Djibo in northern Burkina Faso, was the victim of a coordinated raid by Boko Haram. The bank robbery, which left eight civilians and two police officers dead, is believed to have provided the terror group with approximately $700,000 USD, which has only raised the concern about the group’s ambitions. For comparison, it is estimated that the 9/11 attacks cost Al-Qaeda somewhere between $400,000 and $500,000 USD. Some, however, are doubtful that even with the influx of cash and fighters, the terror group will be able to maintain a long-term presence in the region. By Alan Cunningham ADA News
  21. Iranian Counteroffensive Retakes Siraf Main News Channel - January 27th, 2020 The ongoing counteroffensive that was launched last week by the Iranian army has retaken the important crossroads of Siraf, severing the overland supply lines Saudi forces had with their troops west of the town. This leaves at least two Saudi brigades surrounded, and the port facilities in the area have taken heavy bombardment from Iranian ballistic missiles. The fighting in the area has reportedly claimed at least 55 lives from soldiers on both sides, and there are concerns that civilians in the area are in danger of suffering from a lack of medicine. Pictured: Iranian ballistic missiles landing in on the Saudi-occupied port of Tonbak. The Saudi invasion of the Iranian coast started with some wondering if the battered Iranian military would simply be forced to retreat into the mountains and surrender their coast to the Saudis. This week’s counteroffensive has dispelled those beliefs, routing the Saudi army who has so far only seen small skirmishes from scattered and largely untrained Iranian garrison forces. With the deployment of the battle-hardened regular Iranian forces fresh from fighting on the Kurdish front, the spread-out Saudis suffered a string of defeats in the western half of the country. There are numerous reports of Saudi units falling back in a disorganized manner, though a spokesperson for the Saudi armed forces denied these as “worthless Iranian disinformation”. By Philippe Leclerc Main News Channel
  22. Saudis Seize Bandar Abbas, Advance Slows in Zagros Mountains Grand Central Times - January 20th, 2020 Elements of the Saudi 17th Mechanized Brigade and the 22nd Light Motorized Brigade have completed their capture of the coastal city, Bandar Abbas, according to a spokesman for the Saudi Armed Forces. After a short battle with the last holdouts of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps on the north side of the city, the Saudis claimed victory over the entire urban landscape, despite reports of skirmishes continuing well into the night. The Iranian armed forces, which have already been stretched incredibly thin fighting the Kurdish rebellion and attempting to make up for their losses from the American bombardment of the Iranian coast, were unable to make much of a conventional defense of the region, though the Saudi advance has not been without losses. The Iranian Human Rights Observatory reported that at least thirty-five Saudis were killed in yesterday’s fighting, though the Saudi government only confirmed six. Pictured: Saudi Forces advancing from their beachhead West of Bandar Abbas The Saudi invasion, ostensibly to “restore order to the Arabian Sea and ensure that global trade is not disrupted”, has faced criticism as a blatant land grab and doubts have been raised about how far the Saudi army intends to push into Iran. Iran has decried the invasion as illegal and has already tabled a motion at the UN to sanction Saudi Arabia for their actions. There have also been sporadic counter-attacks by the Iranian armed forces, but for the time being the scattered Iranian troops along the coast have largely been forced to fight tactical withdrawals towards the Zagros mountain range. Many analysts have speculated that without the American strikes along the coast in 2019, the mostly-unopposed landings would have been impossible for the amphibious-inept Saudi Royal Land Forces.
