During the last months, the FANB dismantled several structures used for the processing of drugs and the manufacture of explosive devices in that territory bordering Colombia, where irregulars try to establish themselves, terrorize the population and promote actions to destabilize Venezuela.

These tasks are also part of the strategy to fight against illegal trafficking and consumption throughout the nation, in which all security and legal institutions and the national Executive are involved, with the objective of eliminating this scourge.

Likewise, the military forces comply with the provisions of the Venezuelan Constitution, “… to ensure the integrity of the geographic space through military defense”.
