  • Description

    A DETACHMENT OF THE GREEN JACKETS WHICH FOUGHT A NINE-HOUR BATTLE AGAINST 50 INDONESIAN TERRORISTS AT LONG JAWI, IN THE THIRD DIVISION OF SARAWAK ON SEPTEMBER 28, ARE NOW ENGAGED IN PATROLLING THE RIVERS AND JUNGLE SURROUNDING THE RICH OIL TOWN OF MIRI.

    IN THE BATTLE, THE GREEN JACKETS KILLED SEVERAL AND INJURED MANY TERRORISTS.SIX OF THEM WERE KILLED AND SEVERAL WOUNDED BUT DETAILS STILL CANNOT BE CONFIRMED AS THE CASUALTIES WERE REMOVED BY THE TERRORISTS.

    THE GREEN JACKETS PATROL THE RIVERS AND JUNGLE SURROUNDING THE OIL TOWN OF MIRI FOR POSSIBLE INFILTRATION OF INDONESIAN TERRORISTS FOLLOWING RECENT BORDER CLASHES IN THE THIRD AND FOURTH DIVISIONS OF SARAWAK.

    THEY WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR RECAPTURING THE LITTLE TOWNSHIP OF BEKENU, SITUATED NORTH-WEST OF SARAWAK, WHICH WAS A TERRORIST STRONGHOLD.

    DURING THE REBELLION IN DECEMBER LAST YEAR, THEY CAPTURED THE DISTRICTS OF LIMBANG, TUTONG AND VARIOUS OTHER REBEL-STRONGHOLDS, ALL SITUATED NORTH OF SARAWAK.
