FARC Camp in Panama's Darien Jungle
Food, drugs, heavy weapons, ammunition and weapons of all kinds were found by units of the State Border Service (SENAFRONT) in jungle camps belonging to the 57th Front of the Armed Revolutionary Forces of Colombia, the FARC. The discovery was made in the Province of Darien to the East of Panama City, specifically in the sector of Tucesa. The camps were dismantled and all the goods were seized. (Telemetro)

Editor's Comment: These two camps were dismantled as a result of a joint operation between units from Panama and Colombia. This week Panama's Security Minister Jose Raul Mulino was in Bogota meeting with his Colombian counterparts to continue to strengthen ties, share information, and cooperate on actions such as this. In the past ten years or so the tide as really tuned against the FARC and in favor of the Colombian Military and Police, and with each passing month the FARC continues to get weaker and to lose more of their leadership. The overall size of the FARC has a whole has now dropped down to about 8,000 members total which is very low from a historical perspective. As Colombia continues to pressure the FARC from within, it falls to Panama to be the anvil to Colombia's hammer, and to hunt down these guys and their R&R bases in the Darien. The same holds true for Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, and Venezuela - the other countries that share borders with Colombia. The intelligence services in Colombia are well developed, and they can pretty much tell Panama where to look to find camps such as these.
