US 7th Army is in the ZOC of IT Corps and is marked for attack this round:
US 7th Army successfully attacks IT Corps in Syracuse and eliminates it, so it looks like this now:
Advancing units myst stop on entering an enemy ZOC. The may not move from one enemy ZOC to another.
Does ZOC of an unit that has been eliminated or has retreated still counts as ZOC that we would be moving from? Or maybe when a defending unit is removed from its hex (elimination/retreat) it stops projecting an ZOC on attacking unit and the restriction from 9.52 doesn't exist anymore?
In example above is it allowed for the 7th Army to advance to Syracuse hex after eliminating IT Corps or it is prohibited due to leaving the IT Corps ZOC (that was there before combat) and entering ZOC of GE Pz Corps and GE Corps?
