Shots fired at Helen
Today while Helen was giving a speech about how peaceful things have been an assassin on a roof began firing at her. Luckily she was wearing a personalized bullet proof battle suit. Within seconds the assailant was shot with rubber bullets and arrested. After a quick interrogation proved that the man was from Hiram land. It is believed that he was sent by the Hiramian government to assassinate Helen. Thats all for now.
While we will not put blame on any particular nation until more evidence is found, we strongly condemn the attack and hope that Helen is safe and okay.
We condemn the attack in the strongest terms possible and will monitor the situation.
Should there be any proof raised of any governmental intervention, the Argentine government will consider additional actions including but not limited to sanctions, travel bans, and potentially militaristic action.
However as Arg is closely allied with HL, we will be giving Greenfield the benefit of the doubt.
No comment has been received from the State Council, pending further details.
After 8 hours of interrogation the man cracked. He stated that he was sent from Hiram Land to assassinate the leader do to intel they received from one of their agents hidden in Allexandretta. He also revealed that he was not the only person sent.
(what the hell? dude you need to give my permission to use my nation as a base for attacks. i never approved it.
and also yeah uh just use the HRA not HL)
The Hiramian government officially condemns that attack and has sent condolences. However, we strongly deny the claims the person was Hiramian, stating that "The person is lying to the Allexandrettan authorities to blame the Hiramian government for a action we never did in the first place. Therefore the lie has no proof and we condemn the authorities for believing in said lie."
(I dont believe the HRA is advanced enough to infiltrate my nation. And I just wanted to bring some activity to the region.)
We are inclined to believe him do to some of the information he told us. However we will take no action until we are 100% sure that he is indeed from Hiram Land.
(well yeah, but I don't want my nation to be completely involved. just say some random Hiramian security force that isn't any secret police or military, idk)
Caliph el-Kalil honourably invited the leadership of Hiram Land for a state dinner and meeting in his residence in the Federal District of Damascus.
The Caliph hopes to make a good ally in Hiram Land, seeing their nation as a great new trading and social partner in world politics.
Should the Hiramian leadership accept, the Caliph will personally send out an airplane with the finest quality of service for the Hiramians to enjoy while they travel to Damascus.
They are greeted by our friendly staff and catered to the entire way to the Caliphal mansion. They will experience the city with the safety of our Caliphal guard, and will then enjoy Muslim culture in the Damascus National Theatre and Damascus National Museum. Finally, they will be invited by the Caliph for the banquet where they will hopefully reach an agreement on future Caliphate-Hiram Land relations.
OOC: Hiram do you have proposals for trade or other treaties?
(I think we can do a free trade agreement and lower tariffs, and maybe a 30-day visa free allowance trial if nessacary.)
(An FTA would abolish tariffs between us.
I can agree to that. Can I convince you for a 90-day visa free period?)
(Well we may need to study the waters first.)
Update on the shooter
It has been over 24 hours since the assassin claiming to be sent from Hiram Land was caught. While he has refused to give us his name we believe that to be of minimal importance because of the information he did divulge. He stated after 19 hours of interrogation that he was 1 of 3 people sent here to kill Helen. We have learned that he was not sent from Hiramian Government. What he has told us is that he used to work in the Hiram Land military. He says that he was kicked out of the military for committing a war crime and was sentenced to life in prison. But before he was put in prison the HRA kidnapped him and several others to gain information about the Hiramian military. He along with 2 of his friends ended up joining the HRA because they hated HL and felt they were wronged. They were sent here as part of a plan to spread HRA beliefs to Allexandretta.
(Does this story work for you Hiram Land?)
(Yeah, thats better.)

After much thought, I have abandoned the idea for a new region as the UNOE has been through one change already and we have our established systems, systems which have been years in the making.
As such, I will continue to RP on this account and in the UNOE while simultaneously working on a second account and a second region.
Learning of the full story behind the plot to kill Helen of Allexandretta, President Turner has condemned the HRA once again, urging all nations around the region to end the flow of HRA members across borders and to actively seek and disperse cells of the HRA.
The Department of State has levied a ban against 600 suspected HRA members from travel to Arg. The Secretary of State has also announced his intention to seek a court order that would allow the ban of Argentine passports to suspected citizen members.
