Members of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB), through Operation Cacique Maracay, arrested a citizen carrying war material in the state of Aragua. This was reported by the head of the FANB Strategic Operational Command (Ceofanb), Domingo Hernandez Larez.
Through his account on the social network Twitter, he specified that the detained subject is linked to criminal groups that disturb social peace in the state of Aragua.
