The head of CEOFANB reported that in less than six days it has disabled five aircraft that tried to violate Venezuelan airspace.
Thus far in 2022, the Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB) has destroyed 37 aircraft linked to armed Colombian drug-trafficking terrorist groups (TANCOL), reported Domingo Hernández Lárez, the head of Strategic Command Operations of the National Bolivarian Armed Force of Venezuela (CEOFANB).
In a message posted on his Twitter account, Hernández Lárez explained that the 37th aircraft was shot down by FANB troops on Tuesday, November 8.
“TANCOL aircraft No. 37 of the year 2022 dropped to the ground,” Lárez wrote. “Venezuela’s territory will not be used as a platform for international drug trafficking. It should be noted that six aircraft entered in five days, unsuccessfully trying to violate our national sovereignty.”

The FANB continues its aggressive battle against drug-trafficking practices in the country, maintaining a firm deployment across all borders of Venezuela.
More disabled aircraft
Monday, November 7, the FANB reported that it had destroyed the 36th aircraft of the year linked to TANCOL; this was accomplished through the Venezuelan Comprehensive Aerospace Defense.
“FANB activates the Venezuelan Comprehensive Aerospace Defense, Lárez had tweeted on November 7, “with its detection and early warning system, disabling the TANCOL plane number 36 of the year 2022, for having invaded Venezuelan geographic space without permission. We will not be a drug trafficking platform.”

Last Sunday, Hernández Lárez reported that the FANB had neutralized another plane, the 34th so far in 2022, “for having surreptitiously entered the national territory without an identification code and disconnected locating instruments.”
