The failed attempt of US mercenaries operating from Colombia to stage a coup in Venezuela continues developing with more and more details appearing.
On May 9, Venezuela’s military said it seized three abandoned Colombian light combat boats that soldiers found in the Orinoco river area. This happened several days after the government accused its neighbor of aiding a failed invasion staged by US mercenaries.
The Defense Ministry said the boats were equipped with machine guns and ammunition, but had no crew, adding they were discovered as part of a nationwide operation to guarantee Venezuela’s “freedom and sovereignty.”
Colombia’s Navy said that boats were just dragged away by strong river currents. Probably, US mercenaries also appeared in Venezuela thanks to ‘strong currents’ in the area.
