Venezuela Begins Great Military Operation in Search of Terrorist Mercenaries

May 5, 2020

Venezuela deploys 25,000 soldiers in the framework of a military operation to capture those involved in the US led mercenary incursion that was trying to violate the sovereignty of the country.

“Today we begin this great deployment of search and scrutiny of all those groups that seek to alter the internal order, ” the head of the Strategic Operational Command of the Venezuelan Armed Forces (Ceofanb), Remigio Ceballos, announced on Monday.

The deployment is carried out within the framework of the second phase of the 2020 Bolivarian Shield military exercises and one day after the Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB) has frustrated a maritime incursion carried out by a group of “terrorist mercenaries” from Colombia that tried to enter with two boats along the coast of La Guaira, the maritime zone closest to Caracas (capital of Venezuela).

According to Ceballos, all the components of the FANB participate in this military operation, which, in turn, takes part in a series of permanent exercises ordered weeks ago by the Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro.

The military maneuver aims to “guarantee that every centimeter of our land is free of mercenaries, paramilitaries and any other threat,” the Venezuelan military official told the press.
