Vigilance and vigilance keep the border line tense
Santo Domingo, RD.
The worsening crisis caused by the fuel shortage in Haiti further complicates projections of the crisis in the neighboring country.
Information provided by international news agencies over the weekend indicated that fuel shortages forced some hospitals to stop receiving patients and commercial banks announced that they would only open their doors from today on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. afternoon.
The EFE agency explained that this fuel shortage is mainly due to insecurity and the closure of roads and streets set up by gangs that control the main areas of Port-au-Prince, where the fuel tanks are located.
After the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the streets of the neighboring country are in chaos as armed gangs reign supreme due to the lack of government authority.
The Dominican military command, led by the Minister of Defense, Luciano Diaz-Morva, remains vigil and constantly monitors the situation in Haiti in the face of threats posed by political instability in Haiti.
The Director General of the Specialized Land Border Security Corps (Cesfront), Brigadier General Franck Mauricio Cabrera Rizk, confirmed that the borders are operating normally, and are controlled within the highest security standards in order to ensure trade exchange between Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
He noted that due to the lack of access to fuel plaguing the majority of Haitians, the Dominican state arranged for humanitarian reasons to let them in so they could refuel.
He noted that there are currently no threats in the Dominican territory other than traditional threats, so additional measures are not expected for those already in place.
False message alert
in the southern region.
Pedernales reporter Odalis Baez reported that unknown people were involved in spreading false messages saying armed Haitians were entering Pedernales, which made relatives living outside the province worried.
