Armed Forces of Equanter (AFE) troops are pushing closer towards the fallen town of Smallville despite heavy resistance and counter attacks by rebels from the Inglorious State in Lego (ISIL).
Reports from the front indicated the advance of Equanterian troops along Highway M1 towards Smallville has been slowed down by mines and booby traps placed along the road by rebel forces. Efforts to clear the booby traps and mines are being hampered by enemy snipers.
"We have to move slowly as the rebels are good at setting traps and killing our soldiers," said an unnamed Equanterian army officer deployed in the offensive against the rebels.
In the meantime, supplies in Maname is running low as the blockade of the province and its capital is being tightened by roadblocks from other parts of Equanter.
