Delcy Rodríguez Reports Attack on Venezuela’s Electric System This Morning (Guri Hydroelectric Plant)

Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodríguez announced that the National Electric Service’s (SEN) Guri transmission system was affected at dawn today, causing electricity dips and service cuts in the central region of the country, on the eve of the inauguration of the new National Assembly.

At approximately 1:15 in the morning today, a strong electrical downturn left some areas of the capital city without service, as well as parts of nearby towns, including Guarenas or Guatire, and other sectors of the country, according to users of the social media network Twitter.

Shortly after, at 2:22 in the morning, Rodríguez posted on her Twitter account: “We suffered an attack against the National Electric Service today, January 5, which affected the transmission system of Guri and caused a loss of current in sectors of the capital city and other states of the country.”

She said that the workers of the National Electric Corporation (Corpoelec) solved the problems and restored power within hours.

“The workers of @CorpoelecInfo are repairing this vital service. Investigations to determine responsibilities have already begun. In the next few hours we will give more information,” added Rodríguez.

These events occurred six days after the Venezuelan Minister of Interior Relations, Carmen Meléndez, announced the partial dismantling of the Boycott AN (Operation Boycott) plot to mount terrorist attacks, and prevent the inauguration of the new National Assembly that occurred today in Caracas. The planned actions included attacks on the Guri hydroelectric plant, refineries, and public institutions.
