OPERATION MEEBOS, 1982
 
Operation Meebos, 8 - 25 August 1982

Operation MeebosThe towns of Ongiva and Xangongo have been in South African hands since Operation Protea in August 1981.

The dry season of July/August 1982 once again brought the usual security force push into Angola, this time in the form of Operation Meebos.

The aim of Operation Meebos was to prevent and disrupt FAPLA’s 11th and 19th Brigades from re-occupying the towns of Xangongo and Ongiva respectively. The secondary aim was to pinpoint and destroy the SWAPO Central and Eastern headquarters and caches, respectively situated near Evale and Ionde, and to disrupt logistical routes.
