Earlier this week a joint government IDAP convoy was ambushed in the Saint Kapaulio region Brazil by the Sinaloa Cartel. Two hostages were taken for ransom, James White and Oliver Thompson American and British citizens. Both the UK and US governments refuse to pay any form of ransom as this would strengthen the Cartels influence after the conclusion of operation Impending Salvation in september last year.
Following the death of Sinaloa leadership in Brazil its believed Carlos Calderon is now in charge and is responsible for the attack.
Joint task force aspis is to deploy alongside SBS M Squadron to at Saint Kapaulio pathfinder airbase, ready for a hostage rescue attempt as soon as possible.
