In a desperate attempt to survive against overwhelming odds, ISIS regional commander Tariq Bakkal has stormed Musul City Hall and taken mayor Çeki Dinçer hostage. Bakkal has placed suicide squads across the city, overrunning the Turkish Army garrison on the east side of town and several police checkpoints. The terrorist commander has also demanded the release of all ISIS prisoners held by NATO and free passage by air to the Syrian border, or else he will destroy Musul.
Hurras al-Din militants, having heard reports of the attack, have begun to amass east of the Musul metropolitan area. S-2 is convinced that the al Qaeda affiliate will attempt to take advantage of ISIS' failure and use Çukurca as a base of operations against US and NATO interests in the region.
Alpha Company is ordered to assault through Musul and its environs in the river valley. First Platoon “Widowmakers” will conduct a mounted/dismounted ground movement through OBJ Ark (suburban hamlet), OBJ Bireme (Musul City), and OBJ Camel (village of Ali Rash Köyü). Priority sub-objectives are Musul City Hall and the Turkish Army HQ. Rescue mayor Çeki Dinçer and any Turkish Army or police found alive in the AO. Capture ISIS HVT Tariq Bakkal for exploitation.
3CAB “Falcons” is tasked with general air support including reinsert, resupply, HVT exfil, and CAS. Eagle and Viper must protect the infantry’s eastern flank against HAD militants who may attempt to infiltrate the objective area. Extract HVT(s) to FOB Eagle Eye for medical treatment and questioning.
Rules of Engagement: Military-age male with weapon, mixed camo uniform, and combat kit. Suicide bombers are likely; warning shots are authorized for incoming vehicles at 100 m and incoming dismounts at 50 m. Regarding all other targets, fire when fired upon.
