Unfortunately weather started worsening up. There is very bad fog and heavy snowfall in the area. Visibility is 2 meters. The terrorists are playing a risky game by sending raiding teams in these conditions but unfortunately due to the bad visibility our brothers can't react earlier and we suffered casualties in the last attacks. After this attack 9 terrorists were killed in the area.
Terrorists have a perfect infiltration route to Seri Tepe where our heroes were martyred. The terrorists have control over the hill opposite to Seri Tepe. There is also a tunnel network in that area. They infiltrate trough a route that's breaking the line of sight of the Seri Tepe outpost and crossing trough a creek. Combined with the terrain at the creek and also the bad visibility they manage to infiltrate and attack the closest outpost on their route which is Seri Tepe. There were several attacks in the area lately but unfortunately in their latest raid we got casualties.

Unfortunately today around noon we suffered another attack in Parasiya area. Two-three terrorist groups infiltrated from Gapnerk Mountain and attacked our soldiers from the back. There were signs that terrorists returned to the mountain earlier but due to bad weather nothing could have been done. Regardless of the bad weather and the disadvantage our soldiers managed to show their strength, fought back and neutralized 3 terrorists in the outpost area and captured at least 1 more (visually confirmed). There may be more casualties on the terrorists side.
