August 25, 2019


Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodríguez has described an explosion in a gas plant in the state of Miranda, in northern Venezuela, as “terrorist planning.”

“The terrorist plans of the imperial right against public services will meet with the repudiation and absolute rejection of the Venezuelan people! United we will defend our Venezuela from those who seek its destruction and attack the population!”, He said through his Twitter social network account.

For his part, the Venezuelan Minister of Petroleum, Manuel Quevedo, has used the same social network to report that there has been an explosion in a gas plant. “The flames have been stifled and the situation controlled by the Firefighters, Civil Protection, the FANB, the national militia and police bodies,” he said.

At the moment, only one company worker has been injured by this explosion, as detailed. “He was evacuated and treated at a Medical Center in the Valleys of Tuy. Our solidarity with his relatives,” he added.

The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, has activated the investigations of the case, a contingency plan to guarantee gas and recovery work. Finally, Quevedo has denounced the “terrorist right” and accused her of “being behind this sabotage against the people.”
