The improvised explosive devices (IED) were destroyed in a controlled manner by the Explosion and Demolitions team.
While developing military operations, the troops of the Omega Joint Task Force, assigned to the Joint Command No.3, found and destroyed a mined area in rural area of La Macarena, containing nine 40-pound cylinders, one with abundant explosives and eight empty and split in half.

Thanks to coordinated work with Military Intelligence, it was possible to find the place that would apparently be used by the residual organized armed group of the Seventh Front to affect the troops and the civilian population that moves around the area.

With these actions, the Omega Joint Task Force makes evident the coordinated work they develop with the ground, sea and air soldiers, in order to neutralize the threats in the southeast of the country.
