They are trying to infiltrate Colombian paramilitaries - Maduro
President Nicolas Maduro denounced, that his opponents, with US support, are trying to infiltrate Colombian paramilitaries to generate violence and chaos in Venezuela.
On national radio and television Maduro called the people, the military and police forces to be vigilant and to prevent an armed attack from Colombian infiltrated paramilitary forces in Zulia, Tachira and Apure.
"They want to infiltrate armed groups trained by paramilitaries in Colombia, because they were given orders from the north just how to destroy the homeland of Bolívar, and I want to tell those imperialists from the north, that the homeland of Bolívar can not be destroyed by anyone", said the president.
At a public meeting with workers in Ciudad Guayana, in the southern state of Bolivar, the president said 20 masked men hijacked a truck full of drugs in the Zulia oil state.
Maduro added that another masked 20 tried to burn a truck full of gas containers in the Andean state of Táchira, and stressed that it was "a group of 20 masked called People's Will", the same name the opposition party of the jailed former mayor Leopoldo Lopez has had.
He said that he spoke to the ministers of Defense and Interior, Justice and Peace, Vladimir Padrino López and Carmen Melendez, to put the police and military forces "on high alert".
He asked Venezuelans to "stay alert" because they "want to infiltrate trained armed groups because they were given orders from the north to destroy the homeland of Bolívar".
He concluded "I tell imperialist of the North: The homeland of Bolívar can not be destroyed by anyone, because here we are - the patriots to defend the immense love of our Venezuela".
