The Army Headquarters - Directorate of Orientation issued the following statement:

On 5/3/2020, a number of social media platforms spread a video and claimed that members of a local party broke into a house and abused its inhabitants.
The Army Command would like to point out that the mentioned video shows troops of an intelligence patrol during a mission aimed at dealing with an incident in the neighborhood of Caracas between (R.M) and other individuals after using barriers. Two soldiers of the mentioned patrol entered the residence of (R.M) following his approval while his mother started filming them and this incited one of the troops to stop her from filming according to regulations without causing her any harming.
The patrol members asked (R.M) to file a lawsuit before the relevant judiciary to deal with the issue in the appropriate legal manner.
