Maduro announced the impending provocation of the United States and mobilized the army

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said about the provocations being prepared by Colombia and the United States and ordered to mobilize the army.

“I have information that the Colombian authorities, together with the Southern Command of the US army, have planned another provocation on the border of Venezuela and Colombia,” Maduro said during a meeting with transport workers. He also added that all personnel of the Bolivarian armed forces “need to be on alert.”

According to the Venezuelan leader, the purpose of the series of provocations is to provoke a military conflict on the border, as well as divert attention from the ongoing protests in the country.
