The Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) have neutralized 42 aircraft linked to drug trafficking so far in 2022, reported the operational strategic commander of the military corps, Domingo Hernández Lárez.
The “invader” plane was destroyed “when trying to land on a clandestine runway” in the state of Zulia, on the border with Colombia, which had been “disabled” by the FANB, the military official explained on his Twitter account.
With the destruction of this plane, belonging to the Colombian Armed Terrorist Drug Traffickers (TANCOL); “aircraft disablements increase to 42 in 2022,” he assured.
“The FANB is deployed in the state of Zulia in patrol and scrutiny tasks against the drug-trafficking invaders who intend to use our national territory as a platform to export their products that harm humanity,” said Hernández Lárez on the social network.
In the first 10 months of the year, the Armed Forces disabled 44 runways “setting up by the TANCOL groups” in Zulia, which were used for the landing of planes linked to drug trafficking, according to information published by the military institution.
