Conflict Overview:
The Aden Protectorate has been a British colony since 1839. In 1963, a small uprising sparked an insurgency throughout the colony, leading to an increased presence of British troops. In recent months, the insurgency has increased in ferocity, with insurgents committing more and more brazen attacks on British forces. The government, unwilling to send more troops, has been preparing for self-rule in Aden under the existing tribal system. However, this has not quelled the Marxist insurgents. Earlier this year, street riots in Aden City have made the city rather unsafe, even for British forces. To make matters worse, the Arab Police and Arab Army revolted last month, incited by the Six-Day War in the Levant. Rebel forces have now occupied a considerable part of the country.

Recent Events:

A section-sized patrol was ambushed previous week while en route to the town of Zargabad, near Aden. The area has been teeming with insurgents since. The government wishes to restore order to the town, and recapture some of the fallen British soldiers. However, not wanting to incite any more violence, British forces are to strictly only use deadly force if rebel forces engage them with it. Any armed persons that are encountered should be cautiously approached, arrested, and taken back to the holding cell at the patrol base. The insurgents often hide among the civilian population, and any “stop and search” actions are not only permitted but recommended.

For more information on the rules of engagement, see this service leaflet.

Objectives:

Arrest any armed persons you encounter.
Recapture the Arab Police stations from the revolting officers.
Recover the bodies of the lost section patrol.

Situation Civilians:

Population: Hundreds present in the area.
Allegiance: Many of the civilians support the insurgents and wish for the British to leave.
