SITUATION

ENEMY
Enemy militia from Kunduz appear to have left our AO, the only remaining forces are those based locally, mainly cells based in Chahar Dara. 
In the last week, only 3 contacts have been reported between UKTF and ANSF in our area, however each incident was an IED-initiated ambush. 
We believe they are maintaining a defensive stance to preserve their remaining forces. 

FRIENDLY
The ANP have been mounting increased patrols up to the eastern banks of the Kunduz river, building relationships with local people. 
The local ANP commander has asked us to investigate a local market at "Tal Gozar", just West of the river, to confirm whether they can safely extend their influence out to the merchants and visitors there.
An ANP Patrol is present in the southernmost town, and has confirmed the main crossing is safe (as of 0700 Local).

MISSION

1 Platoon are to establish relations with, and gather intelligence from, civilians at Tal Gozar market, in order to extend the influence of UKTF and ANSF. 

TASKING
  1. Patrol to Tal Gozar market, on southern edge of our AO.
  2. Establish relationships with local residents, attempt to gather intelligence on local insurgent presence.
  3. Be prepared to search/clear any isolated insurgent positions.
  4. Return to Patrol Base
EXECUTION

PHASE ONE (insertion)
1 Pl will patrol to market at Tal Gozar.

PHASE TWO (investigation)
Sections will sweep and secure the market area.
Platoon HQ will establish relations with the local traders/residents there, attempting to gather intelligence on remaining insurgent presence.

PHASE THREE (exploitation)
1 Pl will secure any suspected insurgents for handover to ANP.
1 Pl may search residences within Tal Gozar if they have obtained actionable intelligence, or otherwise observe suspicious activity.

PHASE FOUR (extraction)
1 Pl will return to PB 'Benson', PB 'Invicta', or if escorting captured persons, COP 'TANPEH'.

LIMITATIONS:
Limit of Exploitation: 1 Platoon must not approach within 1km of Chahar Dara. 
Civilian Relations SOP: ANP intelligence suggests this is a relatively peaceful locale. UKTF personnel should avoid entering residences unless they have reason to suspect they're being used by insurgents. When entering a private compound, 2 personnel should make contact with any resident first, before calling the remainder of the section in. This restriction does not apply to the market compound itself which is a public space, or to any compounds where insurgent activity is suspected. "Guardian Angel" procedures should be used for all civilian interactions.
