A US Navy ship attacked and captured a Venezuelan ship, two people were injured
WASHINGTON, (BM) – A few hours ago, near the territorial waters of El Salvador, a U.S. Navy ship and a U.S. Coast Guard ship attacked a Venezuelan sea vessel for no apparent reason and captured it, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing El Carabobeno and US Coast Guard statement.
According to preliminary data, two Venezuelan citizens injured as a result of the attack by the US military.
It is known that US warships demanded that the captain of a ship sailing under the flag of Venezuela to stop, however, after they were refused, they conducted a military operation to seize the ship.
A preliminary reason for this was a check of the ship for drug smuggling, however, given the fact that the United States operated in international waters, the commander of the Venezuelan ship refused to comply with the US military on completely legal grounds.
“The US Coast Guard in the southwestern Pacific seized a Venezuelan vessel as part of an operation to patrol international waters to prevent drug trafficking on the American continent,” El Carabobeno reports.
Information on this subject is also confirmed by the US Coast Guard Command.
“USCGC James led a joint boarding with USSTornadoPC14 on a Venezuelan fishing vessel supporting SOUTHCOM and Presidential National Security Objectives to stem the flow of narcotics to the U.S. from South and Central America.” said the US Coast Guard
