Meanwhile, at approximately oh-five-fifteen Zulu, Turkish forces under the cover of Cyprus air support removed the last Damascus hive, establishing a stable front from Haifa to Daraa. This is the sixth major victory since the beginning of Operation Mount.

But these two victories come under the shadow of a bitter defeat being reported from the Bangkok Siege after Thailand Resistance failed to overload the hive’s shield generators before exhausting munitions.
Thailand Command has called its forces back as far as Sinakharim, a lake in the wilds of Kanchanaburi. Myanmar Resistance, which holds the Andaman Coast, has begun sending medical supplies and rations, but have called upon the Accord Nations to assist in relief efforts and securing the front against Invader advances.
East of Bangkok, the Cambodia Provisional Government has sent support troops into Sa Kaeo, Chanthaburi and Trat to assist Thailand Resistance in holding those provinces and maintain the security of their own holdings.
