“Ninety percent of us in the armed forces are really unhappy,” said Colonel Ruben Paz Jimenez said in a video released Saturday. “We are being used to keep them in power.”
He urged his fellow soldiers to help allow humanitarian aid into Venezuela. The shipment of US aid is currently in Cucuta, Colombia, on the border.
Maduro has vowed to prevent the aid from entering, labeling it a precursor of a US invasion.
