The core rules say:
Rule 4.8.4 wrote:
... Whenever a cell is placed from the Funding track into a country with a cadre, remove the cadre. ...
The solo rules go on to say:
Rule 9.4.3 wrote:
When the flowcharts set up a situation where the Jihadists cannot use any operations value received from a card, instead:
• If the Funding track has a cell, the 1st operations value remaining automatically places one cell into a random country.
If the randomly chosen country contains a cadre, I'm guessing the cadre is removed because of rule 4.8.4?
