When I Opened My Eyes, I Was in the Middle of the Battlefield - Chapter 15
When I Opened My Eyes, I Was in the Middle of the Battlefield chapter 15
The operation area was a common Arab-style residential area.
A place where buildings are closely attached to each other or finished in a hazy and dull color, with iron bars attached to each narrow window.
Some of them had walls and yards, but even those were mostly small or outdated.
With the situation gradually becoming a slum, there were even empty houses in between.
A completely different background from Cinnamon’s hideout, which had a tall gate and a guard post that he had infiltrated a few days ago.
The same goes for the entryway.
It was an unpaved road that smelled like dirt with every breath.
But there was something else more important than that.
the very present situation.
It was the fact that it moved at 15:30, when the scorching sun was beating down.
Naturally, there were civilians around.
It was a video without even watching.
It was because the radio continued to be heard in the short while I was moving through the alley.
– One unidentified person appeared in front.
-2 children appear at 5 o’clock, and they continue to follow.
-One unidentified person is on the phone on the second floor balcony on the right side of the alley, be careful.
Naturally, it was a situation I wanted to avoid as much as possible.
In that respect, it was better to carry out this operation at night or at dawn like the last time.
It was because there were no civilians at that time, and the targets to be eliminated were either sleeping or dozing.
Of course, there are disadvantages that noise is heard well and visibility is limited, but we still had a great advantage in terms of equipment with night vision goggles, infrared lasers, and identification patches.
So I also bought an expensive night vision goggles worth 45 million won.
In any case, there was no way that Sayret Matkal was ignorant of these basic things. I did it knowingly.
As Ashap said, the target had escaped.
For that reason, the operation, the current situation, and everything was not good, but as it was in the game, in the end, this was the right thing.
During the suppression, members of the Sairet Matkal were caught in the blast and injured or killed, but they had eliminated the target they wanted.
However, I did not have the heart to tolerate it.
I didn’t know that I was fighting to the death, but I couldn’t aide even if I knew I was dying.
At this time, I too was determined.
– This is Team 1. arrived at the gate.
-Team 2, we will infiltrate.
With a short radio call, the Sairet Matkal crew crossed the fence.
It was an instant.
Watch from the back of the ranks for a while.
As the gate opened, the ranks that had stopped moving began to move again.
I also entered the gate with the team.
As soon as they stood in the narrow yard, everyone moved quickly to find their place.
-1 team, waiting at the front entrance. Explosives installed.
-Team 2 also installed explosives, and is waiting to enter the back door.
-Here, 3 teams, each door and window, completed securing the balcony view.
Reports on the status of each team followed.
Among them, the role of our G&G Corp Charlie team was to help the first team waiting at the front entrance to search the rooms in turn.
The established operation was also relatively simple.
Teams 1 and 2 enter through the front and back doors at the same time, while Team 3 monitors the windows and balconies from the outside.
The expected operation time was also short enough to be only about 70 seconds.
In a word, it is said that it is over with a quick decision.
It’s not a game, it’s a real game, but this amount of time was enough.
It was because there were only 12 members of Sairet Matkal who would enter the interior by combining the front and back gates, and our Charlie team also had 5 members, making the total number of members 17.
On the other hand, less than 5 people.
And the building was also smaller than the previous Cinnamon operation. The number of rooms was also small.
There are several civilians watching us now, but so far everything has been fine.
Soon, Ashap’s voice came over the radio.
-This is the headquarters. From now on, let the team leader lead the field.
Chiik, a moment followed by a short radio tone.
As if one exploded, a roar rang out from the front and back doors at once.
By the time the sound of the explosion and vibration ran through my body.

Like the ebb tide, the advanced members entered.
Instinctively, my feet followed, as if being sucked.
When I entered the front door like that.
bang! Valid! Tadadadang-
Valid! bang! bang!
Gunfire erupted from inside, followed by voices resembling shouts.
A sign that the target has been defeated and the room has been cleared.
Everything happened in the blink of an eye.
In the meantime, while moving to the front door, Sergeant Sairet Matkal was tidying up a room.
Same goes for the next one.
This time, it was the voice of the team entering from the back door.
And it’s our turn.
They moved toward the door they hadn’t gone to and that was closed.
With me in the lead, Marcus in second, and Jake, Rachel, and Jose all lined up behind me.
Marcus exchanged glances with me and opened the door.
As soon as I entered, I immediately saw the enemy.
A figure holding an AK-47 in a slightly hesitant posture.
It was time to recognize this.
The red point of the optical sight was shot in the middle of the enemy’s chest in an instant.
Aiming with almost no shaking, just like a machine.
It was the ‘marksman’ characteristic that I felt the other day.
But there was no time to admire.
I pulled the trigger right away.
bang! bang! bang!
Three 9mm Parabellum bullets from the MP5 submachine gun pierced through the middle of the enemy’s chest.
I shot it while taking a step forward, and as I pulled the next shot, I fired three more shots into the chest of the fallen guy for a confirmation kill.
bang! bang! bang!
As I checked the blood dripping from my clothes, I heard Marcus’ voice.
At the same time, Sairet Matkal’s voice was transmitted through the in-ear receiver.
-Clear the 1st floor, enter the 2nd floor. Be aware of each personnel bomb.
Now was the time to do my part.
* * *
Rachel was put into operation with an MP5 instead of a drone, her main skill.
It was because the operator of the operation was Sairet Matkal, and the Mossad (Israeli intelligence agency) was already operating drones.
But that didn’t mean she couldn’t do the same combat duty as she does now.
It was because he had experience in various fields of combat at the Department of Homeland Security and the CIA, and his skills in handling firearms were also excellent, so his ability to carry out missions was overflowing.
And what I’m doing now is not just a simple combat agent’s mission.
Tactics grasp and video recording of Sairet Matkal.
Soon, Rachel’s gaze lightly glanced at the body cam attached to the top of the body armor.
‘I didn’t expect to come in with this on a joint operation… … .’
It wasn’t filming secretly. It was pre-approved.
Of course, this would have been impossible if it had not been discussed between the upper management.
It was because the permission process was not easy even for training shooting because of tactics or leaking secrets.
The same is true for the troops of one’s own country, not the troops of other countries.
Rachel knew this because she often quarreled with soldiers like Jake, Marcus, and Jose while serving in Homeland Security and the CIA.
And there was something more important.
That the body cam you are wearing is not a regular camera.
It was different from the product of the last operation.
It was not worn by ordinary soldiers or police officers, but super-high-performance video equipment for intelligence purposes handed over from the CIA in the Arab region.
‘Give me this… … .’
Eventually, Rachel removed the dissatisfaction in the emotional gap.
‘It means that there is something that the front line does not know. In a way that is not insignificantly beneficial to national security and diplomacy… … .’
It wouldn’t have gone this far if it was just a frustrating decision from the upper management.
I knew this from my experience with Homeland Security and the CIA.
There were quite a few irrational issues that were decided by superiors’ stubbornness or political interests instead of on-site judgment.
‘But this is different.’
Preparations for a ridiculous operation, an operation in a private house with the sun rising in the middle of the sky, even camera recording allowed.
Perhaps the Marines were stationed on the outskirts of the region, and there was a possibility that they would provide support in case of emergency. If not, it could block the access of other countries.
And Rachel, who was going up the stairs, brushed off all her thoughts.
No, I had to.
It was because Kang-tae acted unexpectedly the moment he reached the second floor.
“… … ?!”
Rachel’s eyes widened.
She pulled herself out to Jake’s side and looked at Kang-tae’s back.
‘You’re going forward?’
Kang Tae was making his way through the crew.
To be exact, in the future of Wen’s visit.
It wasn’t a tightly closed door either, it was a door that the two Sairet Matkal crews were ready to enter from left and right.
Just hold the handle, and the door hinge moves.
‘Why the hell?’
It was, of course, dangerous.
It wasn’t even a matter that was discussed with Sairet Matkal, and it was because the door made of boards and lumber would pierce like a honeycomb if fired wildly.
If he ran forward like Kang-tae, there was a high chance of getting hit by a blind bullet.
‘Are you crazy?’
Around the time Rachel instinctively steps toward Kang-tae even as she suddenly recalls the swear words.
Jake, Marcus, and Jose were also on their way to Kang-tae.
It was an unexpected situation, but since it was a team member, it was necessary to move and watch to support and cover.
However, Kang Tae was faster.
I was stepping into the room that had begun to open.
In an instant, Rachel’s pupils shook.
“… … !”
The view beyond the open door was the worst.
A person wearing a vest with all kinds of gadgets and holding a cylindrical handle.
The situation was understood in an instant.
As time passed by the decimal point, her body was wrapped in tension as she moved forward.
It was different from fear or fear.
I realized at once that the current situation was serious.
And there was Kang Tae in front of him.
It was going alone. The left and right side mat knives seemed to move together, but I didn’t feel relieved at all.
I was even more anxious to the extent that my emotions were shaken.
It was such a big crisis.
That also happened to Kang-tae, who had to be careful. No, Kangtae was jumping into it.
The moment when even Kang Tae’s back cover the target.
A long, loud gunshot rang out.
And then, a quick-fire roar ensued.
bang! bang! bang! bang! bang!
It was heard when the members of the Sairet Matkal were just aiming their guns.
And soon, the soft words were added.
It was Kang Tae’s voice.
It means that ‘Tango’, which stands for the first letter of the target’s alphabet ‘T’, has collapsed.
As if time, which had been slowing down, returned to its original state, Rachel’s breath came out of her mouth.
“Huh… … .”
Then Kang-tae lowered the gun, the target screamed, and the crew rushed inside.
In the midst of swearing and screaming in Arabic.
Jake, who was approaching to ask why and reprimand Kang-tae, stopped.
At the same time, emotions such as embarrassment and anger were cut off in an instant.
And that wasn’t all.
All of the Sairet Matkal crew who were entering the room hesitated like Jake.
Kangtae didn’t just shoot the target.
“… Did you hit it on purpose?”
“I just apologized… yes? Ah yes. I did it because I was afraid that the switch would be pressed even if I shot him in the head.”
Kang-tae, who was about to apologize, quickly replied, but Jake couldn’t say anything behind his back.
“… … .”
It wasn’t that easy to say.
Rachel, who had come closer, also realized.
‘… what? Did you shoot your thumb? to the other hand… … ?’
Her mouth opened slowly.
No matter how close the distance was, no matter how much shooting training was done, even if you were a master of sniping, it was difficult to do this.
The situation at the moment the door opened was sudden, and the target was moving.
However, Kangtae only gave a thumb that was smaller than a coin. The same goes for hitting the remaining bullets in the other hand accurately and blowing them away.
Shooting is also shooting, but making and executing such a judgment was not something anyone could do. No, right now, it was clear that she would habitually hit the target’s chest or head. Training and instinct were like that.
It could have been detonated if done wrong. Maybe the thumb pressed the switch.
Eventually, the gunshot just before flashed into Rachel’s mind.
‘That first step was the thumb. The rest of the quicksand was the opposite hand… … .’
All I saw was the back, all I heard was gunshots, but it was such a perfect, clean job.
Rachel let out a sigh involuntarily.
“Wow… … .”
