After the attacks by irregular Colombian armed groups in La Victoria town on March 21, the Strategic Operations Command of the Bolivarian National Armed Force (CEOFANB) deployed its troops in the state of Apure, and strengthened surveillance in all territories bordering Colombia.

As part of the containment actions, the military high command activated a special comprehensive defense operation zone that covers three municipalities and more than 700 kilometers of bordering line, commanded by Major General Javier Benitez Marcano.

The 94th ‘Negro Primero’ Special Comprehensive Brigade, which will be led by Brigadier General Wilfredo Alexander Medrano, was deployed after several days of clashes to guarantee citizens’ security and maintain search and capture operations, according to official reports.

The defensive strategy implemented by the military command left nine irregular soldiers dead, 33 prosecuted by the military justice, six camps destroyed and 16 explosive devices deactivated in the theater of operations.

The Venezuelan Government asked the United Nations to provide its expertise to the FANB in the cleaning and deactivation of those devices.
