MORDU’S LEGION and ARKOMBINE forces have launched simultaneous attacks on key SERPENTIS controlled ORE stations across the OUTER RING region. The assaults appear to have captured all stations in swift, surgically executed operations, with most of the fighting already winding down. The same tactic was applied during all of the captures. MORDU’S used their fast ships to warp in and immediately throw out warp disruption fields to prevent any escapes. The importance that Mordu ships seem to have placed on destroying all ships attempting to escape somewhat contradicts the statement released by the UPWELL CONSORTIUM today. Stating that the main objective of the operation was to return the control of the stations and ORE itself to the rightful owner and founder of ORE, YANI SAR ARTEU. Once the space had been secured, shuttles carrying ARKOMBINE mercenary forces warped in and entered the stations. In most cases the station personnel surrendered without a fight. It is expected that ORE will announce it is joining the UPWELL CONSORTIUM as a full partner later today. This is Lina Ambre reporting for the Scope.
