This war material of foreign origin was found in two buckets buried more than four meters underground.
Troops of the Quirn Task Force maintain sustained military operations in the department of Arauca, in the municipality of Cubar, Boyac and in Toledo in Norte de Santander, in order to deliver heavy blows and neutralize terrorist actions of the organized armed groups that operate in the jurisdiction.

Thus, in the last few hours, an illicit warehouse was found on a mobility corridor that connects the village of Cao Azul with the village of Bocas del Ele, municipality of Arauquita. The place contained 4070 cartridges caliber 7.62 mm and three magazines for a .50 high precision rifle.

This war material was going to be allegedly used by the GAO-r First Structure to attack the civilian population and the infrastructure of the department. These intentions were frustrated by the troops of the National Army within the framework of the Diamante Plan and also by the civilian population itself, who are welcome to continue reporting suspicious actions that put at risk the integrity of the inhabitants of this region of the country.
