The report specified that the 20th phase of the operation took place between October 2nd and 16th, and its results were described as positive.

Criminals were captured, drugs, weapons, money and other illegal items were seized, and 138 migrants were detained.

Military personnel, aircraft, vehicles and special forces teams are deployed on both sides of the border as part of the operation to carry out patrols, controls, searches, arrests of people and seizures of property involved in illicit activities.

Last Monday, the commander in chief of the Nicaraguan Army, Julio César Avilés, and the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Honduran Armed Forces, Jorge Fortín Aguilar, held a working meeting to strengthen friendship, cooperation and collaboration between both armed forces.
