During the year, there’s a significant risk that the paramilitary camp will be destroyed in an attack, and that one of the farm family members will be caught in the crossfire and die. If this happens, the following message will be displayed on the next annual report:

The training camp is destroyed in battle… One person got caught in the crossefire and has died.

Whether this happens or not, the temporary camp will disappear at the end of the year.
