Map: @ruhaConflict Overview:
Following the tumultuous breakup of Yugoslavia earlier this decade the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR) was created to help restore order and establish peace to some of the affected areas. Especially in Bosnia, where fighting has been heaviest, UNPROFOR troops are needed to protect civilians from the multiple warring entities: Bosnian-Serbs, Croatians, and Bosniaks. Recent Events:
In the area around Ruha in Bosnia fighting has recently picked up. A Dutch contingent of UN soldiers based in the area have been subjected to repeated assaults from the Bosnian-Serb militias in the wooded area. NATO airpower has been less effective than hoped because of the large forests the Serbs have at their disposal. A British relief force is being sent in to clear the path ahead of a UN convoy transporting supplies to both the Dutch UN units as well as civilians.
Bosnian-Serb militias have used the opportunity to take control of large portions of the Ruha area, erecting checkpoints and camps wherever the want. Dutch reports indicate the enemy has light artillery in the area, and that the militias are using mines to control chokepoints.Objectives:
