Within the framework of the operations developed to combat the transport of contraband food, products and fuel, the authorities disabled six illegal corridors in Norte de Santander.

The troops of the 30th Brigade of the Second Division of the National Army and the Customs Fiscal Police, during operations developed in the jurisdiction of the municipality of Villa del Rosario, located these illegal corridors used by organizations dedicated to smuggling.

In the township of Juan Frio, soldiers of the Mechanized Cavalry Group No. 5 - General Hermogenes Maza, members of the Customs Fiscal Police and the Mobile Anti-Disturbances Squadron, with the support of men and the machinery of the Construction Engineers Battalion No. 50 obstructed said corridors.

So far this year, the authorities have hindered the movement to the contraband organizations by disabling 25 illegal corridors.
