Chris The infantry rode their way back in using the 1st Hussars LAVs and Coyotes as transports.

Aleppo Syria.
The two regiments journeyed their way back to where they last encountered Al-Kabab near the Government building they where supposed to guard, the rest of the NC forces spread out in their end of the city looking for the militants, so far none where found.

Syria
Commonwealth forces set up roadblocks on all major highways in the zone from just north of the Aleppo Intl Airport, south, to the west to the northwest of Aleppo. All major highways intersections of highways going around and/or through that area are having Inspections of vehicles, cargo.
.
Found a few trucks of weapons. Any vehicles that turn around to avoid are pursued. If those do not stop they will be fired upon. Posted signs are going up as they approach inspection points. Dogs are out to help detect at these points.
.
Not sure about the Canadian military going through our lines. They were able to get through prior to us getting our assets in place. We still need to tighten the ring. We are moving check points to smaller highways.
.
The airport continues to have flights land, unload, then takeoff. As more people and equipment arrive and being used, the efficiency is improving. Razor wire with cans attacked are going up. Wheeled patrols, patrols on horseback and with security dogs are being conducted. Earthworks for vehicles are being prepared using some front-end loader era, hiring locals to assist in the work that requires more work than we are able to perform. Counter-battery radars have be located in and around the airport. Links to Command/fire control of 4 and 6 gun batteries are being set up. 3 MLRS vehicles will be arriving in the morning with their support.
The airport is a beehive of activity.

Aleppo, Syria
After setting up road blocks to conduct inspection trying to stem the tide of Al Kabab in Aleppo, Al Kabab has started to respond. There were two guys in a car that came up to a road block that started firing their AK-47 wounding a corporal and killing a passenger on a bus that was being inspected. The car was riddled with bullets, neither survived. The concrete barricades and HESCO barriers helped protect life.
. Other roadblock stations are being set up and improved. We expect more attacks as the CoC forces strive to reduce the Al Kabab mayhem in Aleppo.
. Logistic activity into the airport continues. People have been observed on hills around the airport watching with cameras. As the CoC forces responded sending up a 3 vehicle detail the guys left the hill. It was decided to set up a secure observation station. The infantry dismounted with security teams moved out to a perimeter. Others started digging in.
. A call back to base security command, more guys in armored vehicles arrived. Engineers arrived later to set up a forward fire base with concrete barricades and HESCO barriers and two reinforced bunkers and a tower. Razor wire was placed around the fire base 100 yds and 200 yds out. The electricians will be setting up cameras and linking to the operations bunker below and to the security operations center on the base.
. Ships continue to off load supplies and equipment in the Port of Latakia. From there truck traffic up from Latakia on Hwy M4 and M5 is increasing. More convoys, larger convoys with a more robust escort & security. Many convoys are routed to the groups and units that have been receiving their supplies. Now additional convoys are needed with the increased manpower needed for the expansion of responsibilities.

Aleppo Syria
The New Canadian Troops are startled by the CofCs presence in the city.

(New Canadian Sergeant): "What the Hell is going on here, CofC troops in the city? I thought that we have it to ourselves?

(New Canadian Officer): "We never authorized them to come in. I'll have to report this to the Commander. (Picks up a radio) "Commander McTavish, the CofC are here in the city sir."

(Commander McTavish): "CofC in the city?" (A chair can be heard breaking in the background). "DANM those people we did not ask them to come in without our permission !!! Ugh, continue on with the mission here then get back to the FOB for further orders."

Aleppo, Syria
. Canadians overreact again, even with a decision based upon false assumption.
CoC is not in Aleppo inner city. Have forces on perimeter, on highway, at the airport. But if we had moved in, it was when you had abandoned Aleppo for the 3rd time. That is when we stepped up the game to move to secure the Aleppo perimeter and airport.

Aleppo, Syria
Moving more to secure the airport, the highway around the city. Merkava and Namer brigades to the northwest of Aleppo moving to the east some. Keeping an eye on the Turkish military.
Oliphants are moving to the east and airport to improve firepower. Existing AFVs are Rooikats, Ratels, MRAPs, etc.

Aleppo Syria
After hours of patrolling the city and with no sign of the AL-Kabab militants The New Canadian Forces returned to their FOB base in the city for further orders, meanwhile the Military Police are present in large numbers to maintain martial law on the locals in the New Canadian held area of city. Arresting anyone who maybe working or aiding AL-Kabab in some way and to prevent people from joining them. while the New Canadian Red Cross sets up their operations now that AL-Kabab is probably not present in Aleppo.

Northeast Aleppo, Syria
A parade with a band...well, playing a few instruments that are traditional to the Syrians, a few drums. 20 people in the band. After that it is the Gurka Girls on a trailer all covered except for their eyes. Then following that is a group of 600 men carrying AK-47s marching and chanting. The Mayor of Aleppo in a Toyota pick up where the HMG has been removed.
Then 40 guys carrying RPGs marching escorted by 8 guys carrying AKs. Following that are 20 Toyota pickups with HMGs, recoil-less rifles, ATGMs or rocket launchers. Then men carrying sniper SVD rifles. To close a group of about 100 with a variety of weapons chanting 'death of Canada'.
. When interviewed a commander said, we figure that Canada will leave again when they hear about the size of our march... errrrr... parade. We have 1000 men in the parade ready to die for Syria, for Aleppo.
.
Drone over head is a detects that 14 block march. Controllers send in a few more drones, d Predator drones arrive on station. at the end of the parade in an open field. 6 Hellfire missiles are fired at trucks carrying weapons. The HEAT round kill several dozen members of Al Kabab while destroying 7 trucks, damaging another truck and a car. An aide for the Mayor died in one of the explosions. Men that were walking away run upon hearing the explosions. Few more Predators arrive, looking for target away from civilians, a few more missiles are fired at trucks and groups of men with various weapons. One Hellfire with serial number XY-89-4113-2309-4500 contacted the head of a man with an AK pulling two wounded out of the back of a truck. The HEAT round detonates, his head is never to be seen again, the two wounded and 4 more men die, 3 more wounded, one will die later today.

Aleppo Syria.
The New Canadian forces at the FOB and a large contingent Military Police head out to meet with this "Parade" they formed a line that covers the road with rifles at the ready with bayonets attached hoping to scare the remaining Parade participants into fleeing the scene, ahead of the New Canadian soldiers are the MPs M35 trucks equipped with LRADs to give these locals a warning.

"People of Aleppo listen, AL-Kabab is not the way to go here, these terrorists are only just enslaving you to their cause and ransack your homes, if you throw down your weapons and cooperate with us aginest these militants, you will receive aid by the New Canadian Red Cross, failure to comply will result in harsh consequences. We are not your enemies, AL-Kabab is the enemy."

Aleppo
From Canada:
"People of Aleppo listen, AL-Kabab is not the way to go here, these terrorists are only just enslaving you to their cause and ransack your homes, if you throw down your weapons and cooperate with us aginest these militants, you will receive aid by the New Canadian Red Cross, failure to comply will result in harsh consequences. We are not your enemies, AL-Kabab is the enemy."
.
Not your enemies, but harsh consequences for lack of compliance. The aid is conditional.
.
I think the Canadian forces went to a shopping area, a market. Who knows. They donít. Missed the parade by several hours.
.
Al Kabab open fire on the Canadians with the AKs, hitting many. The 16 Kabab were shot down, three wounded did escape, 7 were captured by the Canadians. 6 bodies on the scene.

Aleppo Airport, Syria
Flights have been flying in, landing from various regions of the Commonwealth. Special Infantry units have been arriving, the Grizzly (formerly Werewolf) brigades.
.
"This is Rhonda, from Action News for W;F-O-X-Y, reporting on new developments here in Aleppo at the airport. We have learned that the Grizzly infantry units have been arriving for the last 20-24 hours from various regions around the world. These specialized infantry are said to be highly trained in urban city fighting. Their weapons and training allows them to be more effective than regular infantry in built up areas."
. "For example, they do not carry the regular rifle that most infantry carry. They carry submarine guns, MP-5 is one that is used. big knives, trench knives, knee & elbow pads and specialize equipment as a combat mace or sawed-off shotgun. All that I have seen also carry a sidearm Some of the equipment is similar to a SWAT team to look in other rooms with a camera under the door. The purpose is to destroy the opponent where they are, in buildings."
. "I spoke to a commander of one Grizzly battalion, he said, 'we are going after Al Kabab, they are the organization that instills terror. We aim to reduce its affect, reduce their influence, thus to reduce the manpower available. It will be tough going.' This is Rhonda for Action News on WFOXY."
.
Several of the hills around the airport have been occupied by infantry and security teams, building up a defensive position. Using some concrete barricades, HESCO barriers. Each hilltop station has 2 or 3 81mm mortars, a command/communications bunker and a living area. Some are 12 men while others are double the size. The intent is to remove the access to Al Kabab from taking the hills and to maintain observation of the area. As of now 8 hills around the airport/base have been improved.
.
On Hwy M4 near the intersection, concrete barricades have been set up of move autos in lanes to one land for inspection. Metal poles that lift up allow progress in stages. bomb sniffing dogs are used heavily. Several reinforced guard towers and some concrete tower with HMG overlook the operations. Observers and snipers are employed. Several people have been questioned, over a dozen detained for some time, with 4 being removed to a secure facility.
. At station 7, a car IED was detonated killing the driver and wounding 3 men and a dog. The dog was put down. Any vehicles with only an individual are stopped further out, instructed to turn off the auto, get out of the auto, to move away and remove shirts and pants. It is a tough job that is slow, methodical.

Aleppo Syria.
The 7 AL-Kabab members we captured will be taken to a hotel that has been converted into a makeshift prison to house these prisoners to where they will be interrogated for information and be locked in isolation.

Meanwhile the Military Police are now on a manhunt for the Mayor of Aleppo who is actively working for the Militants he must be arrested for his crimes, while the rest of the MPs continues to maintain Martial Law in the city, and root out people suspected of joining AL-Kabab. hopefully we can get these locals to cooperate to the New Canadian forces.

So what crime did the mayor commit to warrant his arrest? Remember that New Canada came into Aleppo uninvited and picked a fight. New Canadian troops caused a lot of damage and displaced a lot of families. Now you are trying for enforce martial law. But if the mayor leads a protest against you he gets arrested? Is he really supporting terrorist organizations, or just standing up for his city? I donít know the answer, and I donít know Syrian law, but you should be very careful about arresting people.

There where members of Al-Kabab that was among the participants in their Parade, so it was concluded that the mayor is a supporter of the militants. The purpose of our mission now is to prevent people from supporting the militants though Martial Law, as part of The NCs Peace keeping mission.
