COLOMBIA: Government Destroys 205 FARC Hiding Places For Weapons And Ammo

07/01/2018 - 18:50:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The Colombian authorities dismantled 205 caletas (hiding places) in which the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) former guerrilla group had weapons and explosives, said the country's Attorney General's Office.

The procedures, which began in December and ended on April 20, were supervised by 18 judicial prosecutors who monitor the actions of eight divisions of the Army and the Omega Task Force, according to the Public Prosecutor's Office.

The operations were carried out in the departments (states) of Antioquia, Arauca, Caqueta, Cauca, Meta, Norte de Santander and Valle, under the coordination of the Transition Strategic Command, created to advise the Government on issues such as the ceasefire, disarmament and reincorporation of FARC's former members to the civilian life as a result of the 2016's peace agreement with the Colombian government.

The caletas found were part of the weapons deposits that were not located and destroyed by the United Nations mission that was in charge of this work. The UN Mission reported, in September 2017, that 750 out of 998 hiding places reported by the FARC had been destroyed.

The Attorney General's Office said that 1,658 grenades, 121,744 ammunition of different calibers, 51 mortars and launching systems, 902 antipersonnel mines and improvised explosive devices, 7,236 detonators, more than 17,000 meters of detonating cord, 5,428 kilos of explosives, 154 weapons, and 535 accessories for weapons were found in the 205 dismantled caletas.
