Venezuela: Marine Incursion Foiled, 8 Killed

PRESS TV.COM               Sun., May 03, 2020

Venezuela says its security forces have foiled a marine incursion by purported “terrorist mercenaries” who sought to enter the South American country using speedboats from neighboring Colombia, killing eight of the assailants.

In a televised address on Sunday, Interior Minister Nestor Reverol announced the news, saying the group had landed early in the day on the coast of La Guaira, some 32 kilometers from capital Caracas.

“They tried to carry out an invasion by sea, a group of terrorist mercenaries from Colombia, in order to commit terrorist acts in the country, murdering leaders of the revolutionary government,” he said.

Socialist Party leader Diosdado Cabello gave more details of the incident, saying eight of the armed intruders had been killed and two were arrested.

“We have deactivated an attempted incursion of our territory, thanks to intelligence efforts,” Cabello further said at a press conference.

Caracas says it has in past few years foiled several assassination attempts against Nicolas Maduro, the incumbent president of Venezuela, which plunged in a political crisis in January last year when US-backed opposition figure Juan Guaido unilaterally declared himself “interim president” of the country.

Maduro has repeatedly said that his political adversaries spare no effort to oust him with the support of Washington, which has sought to force him from power through rounds of harsh sanctions that have crippled the OPEC nation’s oil exports.

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
