Retired soldier from the National Army of Colombia. Joined when he was 18 years old and remained there 7 years.
This happened in El Catatumbo, Norte de Santander, around the Sardinata River. There the guerrilla is in control.
First they fired at the soldiers who were up in the “cambuche.” The other soldiers were ambushed further down. We killed ten soldiers and they took seven rifles, an M-602, a RPG3, two MGLs4 and a mortar.
We were about three kilometers away from where they were, when we arrived … There was a bomb, they blew up the bridge and three of our soldiers fell there.
We killed four guerrilla combatants who were in civilian clothes and took three guerrilla members who gave us information to kill “La Charly,” their commander.
