Yes ok no bodies found of those who died in this attack, everything seems to indicate that the attackers would have taken them from the camp, located in Casigua El Cubo, in Zulia.
It is presumed that alias ‘Gentil Duarte’ would have reached this area in November of last year, with the help of Javier Alonso Veloza García, alias ‘Jhon Mechas’, head of the dissidents of the 33rd Front of the Farc, who would have provided a security scheme for him to leave Colombia, after he escaped from a bombing in Guaviare, and after another in Caquetá, from which he was seriously injured.
It should be noted that authorities offered up to $2 billion for anyone who provided information that would allow the location and capture of ‘Gentil Duarte’, author of several attacks against the Public Force from Colombia.
Apparently, the perpetrators of this attack would be men belonging to the ‘Second Marquetalia’ or the ELN, in the middle of the dispute over drug trafficking routes and the illegal mining business.
Until now, Neither the Colombian government nor the Venezuelan authorities have confirmed the death of the dissident and his sentimental partner.
