Venezuelan Security Force Members Defect by the Hundreds, says Colombia

A total of 326 members of the Venezuelan security forces have deserted and crossed over to Colombia since Saturday, said Colombia’s immigration authority on Tuesday morning, reported dpa news.

A total of 326 soldiers and police have arrived in Colombia since the Venezuelan opposition launched an operation to deliver humanitarian aid into the country 72 hours ago.

Interim president Juan Guaido has promised amnesty to officers and troops of the armed forces that abandon the repressive forces carrying out Maduro’s attempt to block humanitarian aid from reaching the country.

The vast majority of the disserting forces have entered the department of Norte de Santander, where an aid storage center is located.
