On Saturday morning, a task force from 2nd Bn, Chernarus 17th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to Veremeevo in Beketov to locate and eliminate two rebel operatives, Grigoriy Bukharin and Laurenta Hitaj, who were in command of a rifle/heavy armor group which had taken over the town.

Veremeevo was heavily defended with one T-55 and one BMP-2 in town to provide heavy fire support for the rebel command.

Chernarus forces attacked with town with the support of two SU-25 ground interdiction fighters and one MI-24 attack helicopter. 2nd and 3rd squads hit the town from the south while command squad hit the town from the west.

Command squad entered the town and was immediately pinned down by the BMP-2. Commander tried without success to eliminate the armor vehicle with artillery fire. Eventually an RPG gunner destroyed the vehicle allowing command squad to continue its mission.

Despite being under heavy fire from both rebel armor and friendly aerial vehicles attacking them, commander squad located the operatives and eliminated them. Commander also seized some critical intel documents from the dead body of Laurenta Hitaj.

Casualties were heavy. Command squad lost six, 2nd squad lost six and 3rd squad lost ten. Also, a BRDM ATGM vehicle was destroyed. The MI-24 suffered damage, but was able to return to base safely.
