Links with Venezuela Could become apparent after Maduro is backed by Hezbollah

Links between the Venezuelan government, the terrorist organisation Hezbollah as well as organised crime groups could be confirmed by the support Hezbollah has shown for president Nicolás Maduro. The support comes at a time when the country is experiencing tough political times.

The support for Madura comes at a time when much debate has been made about the leader’s violation of the presidency as well as well as acknowledging the National Assembly President Juan  Guaidó as interim president with the aim of creating a government that has free and fair elections.

However, authorities in the United States and Israel have identified an alleged link between Hezbollah and the Maduro administration. The link relates to negotiations surrounding illegal food imports from the government’s Local Storage and Production Committees, with Colombian businessman Alex Saab being a key player throughout.

The relationship with Maduro has been increased by Hezbollah at a time where the entire community on an international level has Venezuela in its sights due to the way in which democracy in the country has started to diminish along with the humanitarian crisis that is unravelling. This has lead to concerns that the South American country is now becoming a focal point for organised crime in the area. However, it has to be understood that the presence of Hezbollah or any other terrorist group has always been something discussed yet nothing has been proved yet.
