“Coalition forces inflicted a crushing defeat on the PLF today, as troops from the Viceroy’s Third Regiment entered what remains of New Burnham, a border town in the north west of the heavily-contested Trenovat province. Commander Smythe-Howard reports his soldiers engaged insurgents and inflicted heavy casualties, securing the area after what he termed a ‘vicious’ day-long battle.
At the conclusion of the briefing, Smythe-Howard once again denied allegations the town was deliberately destroyed as part of last week’s bombing campaign, designed to demoralize the sympathetic Trenovat population and deny the PLF civilian support in the region. He blamed the Prata Liberation Front’s ‘scorched earth and terror tactics’ for New Burnham’s devastation.” – PNN Reporter, Julia Rabalais, embedded with Third Regiment, Prata Marines, Prata Armed Forces.
