0125 JUNE 27, 2008


Task Force Thunder has held fast around Tiyas for the evening, with the intention to move out at first light. Some dismounted Syrian forces escaped the assault earlier this day, melting into the hills north of Tiyas. Although they lack heavy weapons or vehicles, Command is concerned that they could establish OPs in the hills and direct artillery fire on Route Lightning. Several dismounted combat patrols have been dispatched to the heights to ward off any remaining Syrian troops. One of our patrols has just reported enemy contact.
