Ex-Venezuelan soldiers wait at the border by Guaido call – Other Cities – Colombia



A group of former Venezuelan soldiers, who have been refugees in Colombia for months, are on the border between Colombia and Venezuela, awaiting the convening of interim President Juan Guiadó to Join the day of the mobilization, which since the beginning of the morning of this Tuesday shakes the neighboring country.

The 15 exhumed refugees arrived dressed in civilian clothes at the Simón Bolívar International Bridge, connecting the municipality of Villa del Rosario with the border city of San Antonio. It is expected that in the next few hours more foreigners will join, who are staying at the Hotel Villa Antigua in this city limit.

We call our colleagues at the national level in Venezuela to join this libertarian cause … It must be peaceful and we do not want fights between Venezuelan brothers

"Here is a group of constitutional professionals.We have been given the task of meeting Guaido's call since January 10, when the interim president was proclaimed (…) We called our colleagues at the national level in Venezuela to join this libertarian cause and overthrow the Maduro drug government. It must be peaceful and we do not want fights between Venezuelan brothers ", said an exuniformado who chose to remain anonymous.

Meanwhile, the border between Colombia and Venezuela, through northern Santander, dawned on Tuesday with no further changes in public order. The pedestrian crossings for the three international bridges remain restricted, while for illegal routes, better known as trails, the flow of migrants increases in search of medicines and food in Cúcuta and its metropolitan area.

A security device, advanced by the National Police and Migration of Colombia, it is maintained at the three intersections that connect with the border towns of San Antonio, Ureña and Boca de Grita, in Venezuelan territory.

In addition, the Bolivarian National Guard continues with a strong deployment of its units.

A spokesman for the general command in Bogotá's military forces told EL TIEMPO that there is an alert, but no movement of troops due to the new situation of tension that led to the release of Leopoldo López from Venezuela by a group of soldiers and the so-called national mobilization in that country.
"We are on alert, like any other country that borders Venezuela," said a spokesman for the Colombian Armed Forces.

Since last February 23, when the failure of humanitarian aid was registered, Nicolás Maduro ordered the closure of the border in that area of ​​the country. This measure has hindered the daily movement of more than 35,000 people, most of whom are Venezuelans fleeing the decline of the Chávez regime.
