The Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) announced on Tuesday the “capture” of a suspected new person involved in Operation Gideon, the failed raid by a group of mercenaries trying to overthrow the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro.

As the GNB explained on his Twitter account, the prisoner identified as Víctor Alexis Vásquez Contreras was responsible for providing a vehicle that was used for the “frustrated attack”.

Vásquez has been transferred to José Antonio Anzoátegui Airport, where he will receive a commission from the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN).
