Command squad bore some of the attacks, destroying the French gangs. Intermittent moderate to heavy rain hampered visibility enough so that the Saharani militia got very close to command squad before the attack was ended.

Light and heavy armor attacks ensued as well. Tank 2 which covered the east side of the north-south road suffered a mobility hit from the French speaking militia. Tank 2 continued to fire on and destroy enemy wheeled light armor.
