When US-backed Syrian fighters took full control of the city of Raqqa, it ended three years of rule there by ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), also known as Daesh.
ISIS made Raqqa in Northern Syria its headquarters in early 2014, but in October 2017 Raqqa fell to allied forces. In exchange for a deal to save lives and bring peace to the city, a convoy carrying several hundred ISIS fighters, their families, weapons and ammunition were allowed to leave the city freely.

Short-sighted political expediency has brought us to the current situation. The ASOR Operation Orcus Campaign will focus on the identification, tracking and apprehension or elimination of high value targets associated with ISIS and their allies.
Intelligence indicates senior ISIS members who escaped Raqqa are now scattered across the Middle East, Northern Africa, and the Mediterranean. They have not abandoned their radical Islamic views and fully intend to continue waging Jihad against all who oppose their world view. It is understood their intention is to rally sympathetic groups to the cause of an Islamic Caliphate and share their experience and contacts. This will undoubtedly lead to an increase in global terrorism and a broadening of militant Islamic extremist operations worldwide.
After a brief period of high intensity training, ASOR will conduct a series of operations in support of an international coalition tasked with accounting for all senior ISIS members currently at large. Media and public scrutiny of these operations would prompt unwelcome questions regarding the original decision to allow these target individuals the opportunity to leave Raqqa unhindered. As such, these operations will be conducted with the strictest secrecy and with a strictly enforced set of Rules of Engagement (ROEs).
Minimisation of civilian casualties and collateral damage are keys to the success of this operation.
In response to the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Yemen, the United Nations has pressured Saudi Arabia to soften sanctions and reduce air strikes on the Iranian-backed Shia Houthi rebels.
Saudi Arabia has agreed to a ceasefire and to allow much needed humanitarian aid across the border on one condition; Western forces must eliminate the threat posed to Saudi Arabia of ballistic missile systems currently deployed across the Yemeni border.
The Saudi Air Force has so far been unable to successfully identify and eliminate these missile systems, but have killed many civilians in their frequent attempts to do so. This ultimatum is a win-win for the Saudi negotiators: either the West destroys the missiles for them, or their mandate to continue indiscriminate bombing in the name of self-defence is upheld. The missiles themselves are widely believed to have been provided by Iran as part of their proxy-war against Saudi Arabia. The UN has agreed to the Saudi terms, and ASOR has been tasked with putting boots on the ground to achieve what Saudi air strikes have been so far unable to.
Well-armed Houthi militia fighters and rebel military units from the Yemeni army. There is a high chance human shields will be in close proximity to the missile systems as a means of deterring air strikes.
ASOR will have access to Ghost Hawks for stealthy insertion. QRF will be challenging.
The area is populated with civilians. Their allegiance is likely to be uncertain, so they should not be trusted or relied upon.
