The head of the FANB Strategic Operational Command (Ceofanb), General in Chief Domingo Hernández Lárez, reported on his Twitter social network account that the FANB will guarantee the order issued by President Nicolás Maduro: “'In 2022 the homeland of Bolívar and Chávez will be free of TANCOL'. We are ready!".

“Following orders from our Commander in Chief Nicolás Maduro and the Minister for Defense, Vladimir Padrino, the FANB will fight against the TANCOL groups in any of their forms! Call them what they're called! Independence or nothing!” Hernández Lárez wrote in another tweet.

In a video published on social networks, the Ceofanb indicated that they are "deployed in security and control missions in the towns of Amparo, Guasdualito and Victoria in Apure state."

He mentioned that they carry out "a humanitarian social approach of surveillance and protection of all border communities guaranteeing the sovereignty and independence of the homeland."

The Ceofanb stressed that its objective is to guarantee "that no illegal drug-trafficking terrorist group attacks our sovereignty and independence and peace of our people."

Local journalists pointed out that the announcement of the deployment came shortly after social movements from Apure denounced the takeover of the Colombian district of La Gabarra, bordering Venezuela, by an irregular group from the neighboring country.
