The El Kadsreian military has claimed a victory today in the battle against Gyonyoru Foldunk, announcing that they have killed one of the commanders in the cell The Annex. Foldunk is a Shinto extremist group based in Sentan. They told me how it happened.
When they got a shot against Foldunk commander Usagi Yamanaka of the Annex cell, the El Kadsreian military fired a total of 11 missiles at the target. Yesterday, their military aircrafts followed Yamanaka’s car as it drove through Foldunk-controlled territory in southern Sentan and stopped at an internment camp where a meeting was about to take place. A drone controlled by the military moved in to execute the action.
They launched one 250-kilogram bomb and volleys of smaller missiles. The missiles detected any signs of life and immediately took aim at the target. The aircraft crews are confident that Yamanaka had been killed. However, El Kadsreian intelligence had to confirm it. Searching for her in all her usual haunts found no sign of her, as well as eavesdropping on cell phone conversations among her followers talking about her death. Almost immediately after the strike, the El Kadsre Special Security Committee confirmed Yamanaka was dead, calling it a major hit on Foldunk.
Yamanaka was one of the founders of Gyonyoru Foldunk and a few years ago had announced an alliance with the Shintoist Province and Scarlet Devil of Team Crimson in Kozan, vowing to follow in Frederic Sam Fawkes’ footsteps. Almost a year ago, she claimed responsibility for a pair of attacks on the El Kadsre City metro which killed and injured dozens of commuters.
Both the El Kadsreian and US militaries spent months tracking Yamanaka, after an operation to kill her had been called off at the last minute. This time, they were taking no chances.
