Colombian Military Kills 18 Rebels in Airstrikes

BOGOTA – The Colombian military killed 18 FARC rebels Friday in airstrikes on two guerrilla camps in the east-central province of Meta, Defense Minister Gabriel Silva said.

Both camps were located in a rural area outside the town of Vista Hermosa and had lodging for a combined total of roughly 200 fighters, he said in a statement.

After the air force bombed the bases, ground troops from Task Force Omega entered the now-abandoned camps and found “25 rifles, abundant war materiel, explosives and information of interest to military intelligence,” the statement continued.

Silva said that at least 50 rebels have been killed during Task Force Omega’s months-long campaign against the Eastern Bloc of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, the country’s largest insurgency.
