The military action was developed by members of the Army’s Pegaso Task Force, who managed to locate and destroy an illegal refinery used by terrorists from the FARC’s “Daniel Aldana” front for processing stolen regional oil.

The events took place in the municipality of Tumaco, where the military found the improvised refinery, 4,252 liters of oil, 189 liters of gasoline, a pool, 50 meters of metal piping, and 120 meters of plastic hose.

The materials were seized and brought before the authorities in charge.
