Venezuela has deployed missile systems against US ships to protect the oil cargo
CARACAS, (BM) – A few hours ago, it became known that the Venezuelan military deployed air defense systems and multiple launch rocket systems on the island of La Orchila to protect the five Iranian oil tankers traveling to Venezuela from Iran, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing news agency Aviapro.
According to some reports, the reason for this was a change in the course of the three American warships, which crossed the course towards Iranian ships, which within a few hours should enter the exclusive economic zone of Venezuela.
At the moment, it is known about the massive deployment of Buk-M2E and S-125 Pechora anti-aircraft missile systems in the territory of the Venezuelan state of Falcon, as well as about the full operational readiness of air defense and air forces throughout the country.
Obviously, contrary to US statements, official Caracas may have an information that Washington really expects to capture Iranian tankers, especially against the backdrop of the fact that the United States imposed sanctions against both Venezuela and Iran.
Experts so far do not want to assess the possible risks of clashes with the United States off the coast of Venezuela, believing that Washington is also fully aware of the power of weapons located near Venezuela.
