“FANB remains deployed in Operation “Bolivarian Shield 2022″ carrying out patrols to guarantee the sovereignty of the nation in the cross-border axis,” he said.
100% free of Tancol groups
The patrol operations, the disabling of aircraft and the scrutiny of the country’s borders are carried out under the premise of completely eliminating the Tancol groups.
These actions are carried out under the order issued by the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, who urged the FANB to declare 2022 as the year 100% free of Tancol groups.
