In the last few hours, within the framework of the operations carried out by the soldiers of the National Army against illegal mining organizations, a clandestine refinery was neutralized in the department of Norte de Santander.
The events took place in the municipality of Tibú, in the village J-10, where the soldiers found a valve with an illegal connection.
The military action was developed by the men of the Thirtieth Brigade, assigned to the Second Division, who found and destroyed a refinery belonging to this organized armed group, which was used for stealing and processing crude oil.
The troops will continue to intensify their operations in this region in order to arrest the people who use these financing sources to acquire weapons and explosives to subsequently attack the troops and the civilian population.
