NEW Briefing by SLR :April 29th 1978 Sherkhankhel area. Orders for Operation BelugaInsurgents are active in the vicinity of the Sherkhankhel village. In the previous months there have been a number of ambushes nearby at the Kunar river crossing and on Highway 1 in which the Mujahideen have finally succeeded in destroying the bridge and the 2 pillboxes flanking it.

The local Mujahideens are well equipped with a variety of weapons including AKs, PKs and RPGs acquired from previous raids on our convoys. There is a strong likelihood that owing to the nature of our cargo, they will be fielding extra anti-tank weapons and possibly mortars as well. They want the gold and the cash we are carrying badly.
