The Battle of Jumstraad took place on 7 April 2011 between Indokistan and Ntolian during the Indokistan-Ntolian War. It was a failed attempt of Ntolia to take over Indokistani territory, particularly the cities of Jumstraad and Farhangrad.

Background

The newly-established Ntolia pledged to wage war against Indokistan, with it formally declaring war on 6 April 2011. At the same time, Ntolian forces attacked Farhangrad and the Indokistani national archives to steal important objects, but were pushed back by Indokistani guards. On the evening of 6 April, Ntolia issued a ultimatum, threatening a full-scale invasion if Indokistan refused to hand over the Indokistani Declaration of Independence.

Battle

Farhangrad Building, the main location of the battle.

The battle began at 14:00 Indokistani Time(UTC+7:00), when the Ntolian Army invaded Indokstan, with the intentions to occupy Jumstraad and Farhangrad, resulting in a power vacumm inside Indokistan. The Indokistan Armed Forces took precautions against this: Badra Shidqi and Nabil Ihsan pledged to defend the city as Commanders of the Armed Forces, while Farhan Abdurrahman, then-President of Indokistan, and Dicky L. K. took refuge in a bunker near Farhangrad. In addition, the Indokistani Armed Forces built several blockades on roads inside Jumstraad, which was found to be effective against Ntolia.

In the early minutes of the battle, Ntolia managed to push back Indokistani forces and occupy portions of Jumstraad, but were pushed back shortly after 16:00 Indokistani Time.

Aftermath

The battle crushed the morale of Ntolian soldiers, and reduced the possibilities of a Ntolian victory during the war. After several attacks against Indokistan, Ntolia sent a letter requesting a ceasefire on 8 April, which was fulfilled by Indokistan, who also requested peace negotiations; however, they broke down shortly after.
