Were B.D.F. Soldiers Fired On at Camp Valentin?

There is a report that the B.D.F. came under fire on Wednesday in the Chiquibul National Park approximately two hundred and fifty-nine meters east of the border. The shooting at the patrol occurred at about eleven-thirty in the morning when the soldiers were heading to Retero Camp to follow-up on a previous order to leave that was issued to a group of illegal Guatemalan settlers within the protected area. According to a government release late this evening, “unidentified persons within the Chiquibul initiated gunfire as the B.D.F. patrol approached the location where the illegal settlement was discovered. The B.D.F. patrol returned fire in self-defense and withdrew to safety. No military personnel have been reported to have sustained any injury and no indication of any casualties have been discovered.” The O.A.S. Office in the Adjacency Zone has been asked to coordinate logistical arrangements between both the Belizean and Guatemalan law enforcement agencies, and to witness compliance with the official order to leave.
