Attack on Monakhovo in Beketov, July 4th, 2010 subject logo: MILGAM
Posted by: badanov

Saturday morning a rifle group from 1st Bn, 17th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was sent to Monakhovo in Beketov to locate and eliminate two rebel operatives.

The operatives, identified by battalion intelligence staff as Vladimir Rozhin and Eralda Cunmulaj, entered town the morning before and ordered their forces to set about rounding up citizens they said were spies. Electronic intercepts said they had even executed two, but friendly forces were unable to locate them.

Using artillery fire as cover, command squad entered town from the south while three BRDM scout cars in the east kept up covering fire against rebel technicals and infantry.

Command squad eliminated the operatives, but were unable to find Cunmulaj to seize documents said to be on her person. Command squad also penetrated the town's defenses enough so to destroy the enemy supply trucks they had brought with them.

The task force retreated from town with only three losses from command squad. Field reports say that three rebel technicals were destroyed by friendly forces, one of them by artillery fire.
