Malta Command
Creation ordered of one anti-ship artillery division consisting of 24 pieces of QF 4 inch Mk XVI naval guns transferred into land base forms. The materials to build such materials have arose from the discovery of several rare mines. The build is expected to finish in 6 months. Meanwhile, a division of 40,000 soldiers is being deployed to the region through a fleet of rented vessels. They are armed with WWI era Lee Enfield's left over from the Great War. While not entirely up to date, it was a decent defense for such a difficult to invade island. Several groups of citizens have petitioned the Italian government with concerns over the buildup of troops. The Italian military has assured the people these are simple beneficial moves. Simply procedure and logical. We believe they bought it.


[LIBYA HQ]
1 expert Black Shirts Guard division of 1000 men, 90 officers, ten Volkswagens and several Great War Era artillery units has been deployed to protect the Italian embassy, headquarters and military center. A citizens protest occurred but it was quickly silenced. The Italian officials in the region have faced considerably less violence than before.

One Italian horse-pulled Obice da 75/18 modello 34 unit consisting of 400 horses and 120 units, along with three thousand crew and guard has been deployed on the Tripoli-Tunisia border. Italy has tested the divisions on barren desert ambiguously close to the Tunisian border. An Italian Anti Air Artillery Division is awaiting production approval by the Fascist Grand Council. Forty thousand troops and 3000 officers have been deployed in a combined small army of two divisions. The troops have been marching in several villages. Most are armed with Villar Perusa submachine guns.

Meanwhile the two divisions of 14000 men and 1500 officers located near the the Italian-Egyptian border have left the area for Sicily. This marks an opening of brighter relationships with Egypt.

[ERITREA]
One division of 1200 men and 50 officers armed with Lee Enfields and revolvers has entered the Djibouti province through a series of boat crossings through the Red Sea. Most of the ships landed without trouble, but several encountered gunfire and one African servant on a transport ship was killed by shrapnel. The move caused conflict with local tribes and several soldiers were wounded and a dozen tribesmen killed. This marks a tensing of relations between Italy and the Djibouti locals and perhaps even a declaration of war. A village in the North was occupied.

[Djibouti]

Italian troops engaged in intense close quarters combat following an ambush by tribesmen on a patrol near the beachhead. Several Italian troops were killed and fourteen were captured. Italian Major Tony Buttari sent his troops in pursuit. Italian calvary units captured a village and executed several men suspectsd of participating in the ambush. The calvary then engaged in a brief firefight with tribal soldiers, routing the natives and slaughtering them as they fled.

[Libya]
5000 Italian soldiers dispatched from Tripoli would soon arrive in the South Libyan desert. A message would be dispatched by the Governor General in Tripoli to the French and Egyptian embassies. It stated the move was a non-aggressive one made to secure the southern border of the Libyan colony, and that following the move, no further actions would be made by Italian forces in Africa. The natives and occupying troops seem to be enjoying relatively amicable relations, though there is a general distrust in the air between the local militias and Italian soldiers. A headquarters was established in Ubari.

OoC: The territory of the former Awbari Governorate is what I'm occupying.
