Conflict Overview The island of Tembelen is located south-west of Turkey, approx. 500 km off it's coast. It's been a part of Turkey since the middle ages and Turkey isn't going to let it have independence which they want. The island is separated by two dominant religions, Christianity (Tembelen Democratic Union) and Islam (Islamic State of Tembelen). The western part of the island, which is mostly Christian is pushing for independence and separation from Turkey, while the eastern part which is mostly Muslim wants to stay dependent on Turkey and part of it. In January of 2019., the western part of the island made a referendum about declaring independence which passed with 99% votes for Yes. Seeing as the eastern part of the island is opposed to becoming independence, they have mobilized their military force and have started moving on the western part. The UN and NATO (which Turkey is a part of), have sent in a contingent to keep eyes on the warring sides and enforce a cease fire. During that time, a wall and a border checkpoint has been built to prevent further hostilities between the two sides.
Recent Events At approx. 23:00 local time, the armed forces of the Islamic State of Tembelen have attacked the USMC platoon that is located on the border checkpoint and have captured the checkpoint. NATO command is concerned that the IST will start moving troops trough the checkpoint and start a new offensive that might conquer the whole island. Our platoon has been tasked to move to the checkpoint and secure it at first light. When we secure the checkpoint we are to wait for further orders.
Objectives 1. Secure the border checkpoint and wait for further orders.
