Through his account on the social network Twitter, the operational strategic commander Domingo Hernández Lárez offered details about a wide deployment of troops in the state of Zulia, as part of the Catatumbo 2022 Lightning operation.
“Venezuela fights tirelessly against Colombian drug trafficking and its tentacles. In the state of Zulia, the Catatumbo Lightning operation is being waged with a military deployment of 3,500 combatants,” the general in chief specified.
Hernández Lárez stressed that in the exercise of national sovereignty, the armed forces will destroy all the logistical structures used by irregular groups from Colombia that intend to use Venezuelan territory as a drug trafficking route.
In a recent statement, the Government of Venezuela warned that military operations against organized crime structures in the border region are taking place in the absence of the Colombian public force on its borders.
