Members of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) located 1,500 liters of gas of Jet-A1 aircraft that were hidden in structures linked to the Colombian Drug Trafficking Terrorist group (Tancol), south of the lake, in Zulia state.
«Zulia, Sur del Lago, #FANB in the fight against TANCOL structures, locate 1,500 liters of fuel of the Jet-A1 aircraft″, reported the head of the FANB Strategic Operational Command (Ceofanb), Domingo Hernández Lárez, through his Twitter account.
He also said: “We will not allow our territory to be used for drug trafficking purposes. Out of Venezuela! Military Defense will be exercised!».
Given the constant findings of structures and narcotic substances linked to the Tancol groups, the Head of Ceofanb stressed that under the leadership of the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, the FANB will always win.
“Under the guidance and leadership of our Commander-in-Chief and with a revolutionary, trained, moralized and cohesive Armed Force, coming from the sovereign people, we will always win!” he emphasized.
FANB deployed in defense of sovereignty
The FANB remains deployed along all the country’s border axes, with the aim of putting an end to drug trafficking facilities and actions linked to the Tancols.
These actions are under the instructions of the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, who ordered to declare 2022 as the free year of the Tancol throughout the national territory.
This Thursday the Head of State made a special recognition to the troops of the Ceofanb that remain alert throughout the country, to defend the sovereignty of the homeland.
The recognition of the national President was carried out during the deployment of the operation “Task Force Paraguana”, during which the FANB demonstrated its training and cohesion.
