We received reports that GA fleets, accompanied by Bacterian forces attacked to the Hwisra system later today, a system controlled by the Interplanetary Alliance. As the system only had very little defenses it was taken over very quickly. The governor of the colony was apparently killed in the process. IPA itself hasn't responded so aggressively to this attack, although they've said that any GA ship attempting to cross the GA-IPA border without permission will be shot on sight.
The GA government hasn't responded to the declaration of independence by the IPA colonies so lightly and has promised that actions will be taken against them in time. However, support for the IPA is growing, although mainly only in the border and outer rim colonies. Still some support has been shown in some core colonies as well.
