The Colombian Ministry of Defense’s operations assessment for 2012 shows a historical reduction of members in terrorist organizations. Figures issued by the Ministry indicate that there are no more than 10,000 FARC and ELN guerillas remaining. Hence, 2012 can be considered as the period of stronger control over terrorism in the last few years.
