Operation Hacienda

 

The Colombian National Army has identified a FARC guerrilla stronghold in the Putumayo department of southwest Columbia. The Southern Bloc of the FARC have used the Andean highlands to their advantage and this area is where the roots of the organisation lie. As such, the region is also believed to be harbouring some dissident FARC commanders and continuity elements who are operating outside of the peace accord ratified on November 30th, 2016.

Comlumbian intelligence has identified the presence of the renowned 14th Front leader Jose Benito Cabrera Cuevas in the region and suspect the stronghold is being used as a staging and training area for dissident FARC fighters and continuity elements. Large heavy weapons caches are suspected to be stored in ammo dumps in the surrounding mountains and the cocoa plantations which have always been a primary source of guerrilla funding can be easily controlled from the advantageous high ground. 

 
With the support of specialist elements from the United States DEA, Columbian Task Force combined with shared intelligence from Ecuadorian military a planned operation code named ‘Operation Hacienda’ is set to take place in the coming week to neutralise the stronghold, apprehend high ranking FARC HVT’s and destroy any ammo caches or drug supplies in the region.

Operation Riptide (POSTPONED to 2021)

24 hour MilSim 3rd – 4th October 2020

Due to the soaring rate of serious criminal activity, milita control of swathes of the rural areas within the region and a general state of civil unrest the State of Montanna with support from the federal government of the United State has declared a nationwide suspension of all firearms licences and imposed a localised curfews. A specialist task force combining elements from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and federal agents from The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has been assembled and tasked with the mission stamp out all illegally held arms, stockpiling ammunition and the lucrative drug industry funding all nefarious activity. DEA operatives have reported that the black market in Montanna is saturated with methamphetamine and heroin due to the widespread presence of the Sinaloa Cartel, one of the most prominent criminal organistions operating in the area.  

 

Due to the recent crackdown on firearms the once disbanded Montana Militiamen have reestablished their organisation and declared themselves independent from the laws of the United States.  They are believed to have gained considerable support and are considered heavily armed and highly dangerous. The federal government is about to declare membership of the organisation a criminal offence.  

 

Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, has greenlighted the joint task force of ATF and DEA operatives to deploy to Montana to assist the local police force in dealing with the local militias, stamping out the influence of the Sinaloa Cartel and restoring law and order in the region. ATF and DEA elements have moved to a covert staging area in the state capital city Helena and are awaiting further orders.
