In the first action, it was possible to find the explosives covered with bags and tape near the sports center of the municipality. This sector is visited by hundreds of children and families who enjoy these spaces of healthy recreation.
The second action was held in the vicinity of the Fortul Police Station, in an abandoned house, where it was possible to find and destroy an explosive device that was buried approximately 10 cm deep with a tension activation system.
The installation of this type of explosives demonstrates the clear intentions of the organized armed group to attack directly on the community, an action that violates Human Rights and violates the Geneva Protocol and International Humanitarian Law.
