This Tuesday, March 30, Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lpez stressed that Colombian paramilitary groups had installed anti-personnel mines on Venezuelan territory to prevent the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) from operating. The government of Venezuela reiterates that, according to the Ministry of Defense, there have been eight deaths, six terrorists and two soldiers from the Venezuelan army, as well as 39 prisoners and the destruction of the El Amparo customs office as of this Saturday, March 27th.
