English term or phrase: Thrust of the contention
Hola a todos.

Estoy traduciendo un ensayo sobre las guerras de la antigua Yugoslavia y me he encontrado con ese sintagma en el siguiente contexto:

Such claims of pinpoint military accuracy are suspect in any conflict but, again, the evidence on the ground tends to supports [sic] the thrust of the contention.

Realizando una búsqueda en Google encuentro que es una expresión que aparece en con cierta frecuencia en sentencias judiciales y normativas y reglamentaciones de distinto tipo, pero no acabo de ver cuál podría ser el equivalente español.

Cualquier sugerencia será bienvenida. Gracias de antemano.

David.

an assertion, especially one maintained in argument.
