Conduct of Operations and Results: The operation, which was apparently carried out without enemy contact, was another effort to open and secure an imperiled supply road, this one running from the river port of Ilok on the Danube through the western extension of the Fruška gora Mountains to Sid in the heart of Syrmia.
