The Ombudsman, Carlos Camargo, indicated that he sent a humanitarian mission to the area to verify on the ground the humanitarian situation of the 1,445 families that are confined between the municipalities of Arauquita and Puerto Rondón.

"The communities are in a state of fear and widespread anxiety, with the consequent shortage of food necessary for their food, without the possibility of leaving their homes to attend medical appointments and obtain medicines, as well as the output of their crops for its later commercialization", lamented the Ombudsman, Carlos Camargo.

Officials from the Ombudsman's Office verified that around 1,445 families in the villages of Lejanías, Normandía, El Progreso, La Esmeralda and El Palón, in the municipality of Puerto Rondón suffer the consequences of armed confrontations between alleged insurgent groups.

Finally, the ombudsman urged the call to the armed groups on the importance of leaving the civilian population out of the Colombian conflict.
