“Intelligence received information about a planned invasion from the sea to Venezuela. It was undertaken by people on several speed boats. The armed forces of the republic, which had already been put on high alert, repelled the attack. Eight mercenaries were killed, two were detained, weapons were seized,” the head of the NUS said.

According to GPS tracks, it became known that the mercenaries advanced from Colombia and had to land in the state of La Guaira, near the capital of the state. According to Cabello, the detachment’s goal was to carry out terrorist attacks in the republic.

Cabello noted that behind the squad are the same people who organized the assassination attempt on the country’s leader Nicolas Maduro in 2018. Then, during a rally in Caracas, an attack was carried out on the president of the country using a drone.

“One of the detainees is a drug dealer, a DEA agent, he not only reported this himself, but also demonstrated it with his operations. Unfortunately, those who call themselves Venezuelans are involved in the drug business, and are financed with money from drugs,” said Cabello.

The President of the National Constituent Assembly believes that this is a plan organized with the participation of the United States, a country that, according to Cabello, uses drug trafficking to organize an invasion of Venezuela, hires militants for the proceeds of the drug trade.

The operation was based on information that the Venezuelan government had for several weeks. One of the dead in this operation is Captain Robert Colina. It is believed that Colina was responsible for a militarized camp in Colombia. Cabello pointed out that the GPS system installed on the boats made it possible to determine that the groups that were trying to break into Venezuela left Colombia.

“Who are these people? Obviously, these are the products of terrorist murder factories, which are border militarized camps, “grown up” by the US people and their accomplices,” commented Sergey Melik-Baghdasarov, Ambassador of Russia in Venezuela, on a Twitter.
