In I Corps, with the exception of Hue, where heavy fighting continues, the situation in the northern provinces remains generally quiet--particularly in the recently troubled areas of Quang Tri City, Da Nang, Hoi An, Tam Ky and Quang Ngai. In II Corps, the main Communist thrust continues to be directed against Kontum, Pleiku and Ban Me Thuot. In the Saigon area, although the security situation in some areas has stabilized, there continues to be numerous reports of small-scale Viet Cong activity. In III Corps, the eleven provinces have reported no significant changes in the allied or enemy situation since 1800 hours 4 February Saigon time. In IV Corps, multibattalion Viet Cong troop concentrations are continuing to apply heavy pressure against friendly areas in and around the provincial capitals of Tra Vinh, Bac Lieu, Vinh Long, and Cao Lanh. A late report indicates that fighting has broken out in the Khe Sanh area.
