The Khovan Incident was a battle fought by the Blood Angels.[1]

The battle began when the Blood Angels led an assault to claim the Alpha Legion "Fortress of Lies" on the world of Khovan. Led by Brother Corbulo who spearheaded an attack by Vindicators and Repulsors, the Blood Angels attack breached the immense fortification and allowed squads of Intercessors to pool inside. Yet the Alpha Legion was able to draw out the fight by baiting their enemies and striking to wound and goad the mainly Primaris Space Marine Blood Angels wherever possible.[1]

Though victory was eventually secured, the violence unleashed by several of the Primaris Marines was considered extreme, with traitors being torn limb from limb. This brings evidence of the Red Thirst reappearing in the Blood Angels.[1]
