SKEEBO SYSTEM - Enforcing the continued blockade of the Calamari sector, an attack line of Gladiator-class star destroyers encountered and destroyed several rebel vessels in the Skeebo system.
While patrolling systems trailing of the Calamari sector, an attack line of three Gladiator-class star destroyers supported by Raider-class corvettes was ambushed a by a line of rebel vessels. The rebel craft were summarily destroyed with only two survivors making the escape to hyperspace.
One of the escaping rebel corvettes is judged to not have been hyperspace worthy and is suspected of having been destroyed moments after the hyperdrive was engaged.
The skirmish comes not long after the Imperial Navy successfully blockaded the Mon Calamari sector, where the Rebellion has been isolated on their traitorous worlds. The fleet ambush, believed to have been intended for cargo vessels, is a sign that the Rebellion has turned to desperate piracy for resources. The Rebellion's mistake was to ambush an Imperial attack line, which they had no hope of defeating.
Mr. Prop Agandist, spokesman for the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR) spoke to HNN reporters:
"Now that they have been essentially defeated, the Rebellion is forced to engage in deplorable measures to maintain itself. According to the Imperial Security Bureau, they are not even primarily attacking vessels for resources, but simply to strike terror in shipping companies plying their trade on the edge of the Outer Rim."
"This is about intimidating innocent civilians and forcing local planets to seek trade with the Calamari Sector, rather than depend on shipments from the Core Worlds."
