A platoon of the Amazonas Rapid Reaction Unit (URRA) deactivated three explosive devices and a trap in the La Capilla sector of the Páez municipality, Apure state, planted by the Armed Terrorist Drug Traffickers of Colombia (Tancol) on a path for passers-by on Thursday , reported the Operational Strategic Commander of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (Ceofanb), G/J, Domingo Hernández Lárez.
According to a message on his account on the social network Twitter, Hernández Lárez confirmed that the FANB will continue “working hard” to put an end to these terrorist actions.
Likewise, the Commander of Ceofanb reiterated that given the actions of the Tancol groups in the country, the FANB maintains “the fight against drug trafficking.”
On the other hand, indicating that these maneuvers are not typical of Venezuelan customs, Hernández Lárez said: “None of this is national! The URRA Anzoátegui occupies positions in the TANCOL camp, seizing explosive devices, weapons, uniforms and ammunition, FANB will continue to stand firm in its fight for our homeland Venezuela!
The scrutinizing, patrolling and exploration of the national territory, specifically on the borders, carried out by the members of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces are framed in the order given by the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, to liberate the country from “any vestige of Tancol presence” in the country.
“FANB continues to carry out orders from our Commander in Chief @NicolasMaduro in freeing Apure state from any vestige of TANCOL presence in our sovereign territory! They will be rooted out”, indicates the Ceofanb Commander.
The actions of the FANB against the Tancol are part of the Operation Bolivarian Shield 2022 Vuelvan Caras, widely deployed in the state of Apure, with a large contingent of military personnel from all components, including the Bolivarian Militia, for the expulsion from the country of Colombian terrorists and thus put an end to their terrorist actions.
“Venezuela is not a shelter for camps, laboratories or explosives factories TANCOL! FANB will exercise Military Defense in pursuit of our sovereignty!”, stressed Hernández Lárez.
