Venezuelan General Calls For Military intervention Against President Maduro


The Venezuelan air force general has called on his country’s armed forces to rise up against President Nicolas Maduro, who remains in power with military support despite a sweeping economic crisis.

General Ramon Rangel said in a video appeal issued on Sunday, “It’s time to rise up, it’s time to fight … it’s time that the armed forces became aware.”

Rangel appeared in civilian clothes and whose location is unknown is the latest of several military figures to call on Venezuela’s military to abandon Maduro.

Another Air Force general, Francisco Yanez, pledged his allegiance to opposition leader Juan Guaido on February 2.
