- TLO-SYRIAN WAR RAGES ACROSS MIDDLE EAST
PHILIPPINES TO ACCEPT REFUGEES; CHINA VETOES RESOLUTION
Belligerents: TLO-Syrian War
Defenders: Iran (Paseo)
After a war between the TLO and Syria broke out, the United Nations issued a resolution, which was vetoed by China, as it "did not hold Syria accountable enough", as Syria conducted operations in Turkish territory itself, to wipe out TLO assets.
The Battle of Kasab would lead to a TLO victory, as the residents of Kasab recieved 15 minutes of earrape, as constant mortar fire rung from the positions of the TLO. Syrian forces eventually bombed the city and planned a liberation, positioning 1,000 soldiers on all four sides. The opening conflict occured in the towns of Al-Issawiyah, Burj Islam, and Kirsana. Some of the major battles were the battle of Kasab and the hastily fought Battle of Al-Rai.
There has been no definitive victor, although OsivoII itself has arrested some TLO militants. Additionally, the Philippines passed an executive order to allow Syrian refugees affected by the war to enter the Philippines. No Syrian refugees have entered the Philippines yet.
KOREA BECOMING DEMOCRATIC AGAIN?
UNITED FUTURE PARTY GETS LESS SEATS
After an opposition landslide in Korea, the president of Korea was said to be "extremely irritated". Her party, called the United Future Party only held 10 seats, after losing 37 seats. Meanwhile, there was a pact between the two main opposition parties and independent candidates which were part of the defunct Justice Party.
Candidates would not stand against one another, a number of seats decided based on internal polling and the last election. The election results were met with street parties and glass-breaking cheers, which would be broken up by the Police, only escalating the situation.
Additionally, rumours spread around Korea that Park may want to abolish the Metropolitan Council. Although the people remain jubilant, with UFP posters vandalized with "the moustache", or Volkist symbols, Park's grip on power may be loosening.
Additionally, the Philippines does not recognize Korea as a country, but rather recognizes the pre-Park government, following in the footsteps of sanctions administered after Korea's government was overthrown.
