A month after the self-proclamation of Deputy Juan Guaidó as acting president, immediately supported by the United States and its international allies, the most radical sectors of the oposition generated serious outbreaks of violence in the western state of Táchira.

In complicity with Washington and Bogota authorities, shock groups related to this opposition leader carried out destabilizing actions on the border with Colombia as part of a false humanitarian aid operation.

The delivery of the alleged humanitarian aid, collected in the border town of Cúcuta, was denounced by Caracas authorities as a front to cover up a military intervention in Venezuela.

Hundreds of people, civilians and soldiers, were injured on the Venezuelan side due to clashes reported on the Simon Bolivar and Francisco de Paula Santander international bridges, and in the locality of Ureña.

With the aim to hold soldiers of the National Bolivarian Armed Forces (FANB) responsible of alleged repressive actions, the violent groups of the opposition even set a truck on fire on the Colombian side of the Santander bridge.

These events prompted the Venezuelan government to break diplomatic relations with Colombia, due to systematic acts of aggression coming from the neighboring country, sponsored by the United States, according to a statement issued by the foreign ministry.
