Joint Task Force Heavy has been tasked with the liberation of the Qeshm and Sirri Islands, North of Oman in the Persian Gulf.
Intelligence has confirmed that the Iranian Government have been receiving military, infrastructure, and financial assistance from China in the recent months, culminating in a military build up in the region that has already had serious regional repercussions. Locals in the area are reporting widespread criminal activities by occupying forces, including murder, rape, destruction of property, and theft of property. Aid to said areas have been ramped up, but a few strongholds are making the complete liberation of Qeshm very tedious.
The first strike took place by JTF Heavy elements from the 484th Squadron, 509th Squadron, VMA-290, VFC-119, and VMFA-390 on Sunday, January 13th, 2019 at 12:00pm - with success to the degree that ground elements were dropped via parachute to assist with the fighting on the ground.
The next few weeks will be critical in how the region will be able to recover from such actions, and the enemy has not been completely eradicated.
