The vessel was destroyed as a hazard to navigation.

The interdiction was the result of multi-agency efforts in support of U.S. Southern Command’s enhanced counter-narcotics operations in the Western Hemisphere, the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) and High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) programs, and the Caribbean Corridor Strike Force (CCSF).

On April 1, 2020, U.S. Southern Command began what was then known as Enhanced Counter Narcotics (CN) Operations in the Western Hemisphere to increase the disruption of drugs. This counter Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCO)/CN operational approach, which has become enduring, supports our objectives to degrade the capabilities of TCOs and save lives. With our increased presence, we have bolstered support to U.S. and partner nation law enforcement by sharing information and intelligence to help expand target packages. Since then, our key partners have been involved in over 60% of drug disruptions since April 2020 (up from 50% in 2019).

Once aboard a Coast Guard cutter, all suspects receive food, water, shelter and basic medical attention. Throughout the interdiction, Coast Guard crew members were equipped with personal protective equipment to minimize potential exposure to any possible case of COVID-19. There were no suspects in these cases reported to have any COVID-19 related symptoms.

(MIAMI,Fla.) USCG REPORT: Coast Guard Cutter Charles David Jr.’s crew repatriated three Cuban migrants to Cuba, Wednesday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.18: “ These migrant ventures are not only illegal, but in many cases very dangerous,” said Lt. Gregory Mitchell, commanding officer of cutter Charles David Jr. “In many cases, including this one, the vessels we interdict are unseaworthy and have little to no safety or communications equipment. We strongly encourage anybody even thinking of taking to the sea to go through the proper, legal channels for immigration.”

UNITED STATES: ‘ HURRICANE GONZALO SIXTH OF 2014 BATTERS ITS WAY TO BERMUDA ‘

#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES – October 15 – Gonzalo has become the major hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean and is expected to gain force, the Miami-based National Hurricane Centre said (RT) reported. 

Hurricane Gonzalo Moving North; Bermuda Under Alert (FORECAST)

Hurricane Gonzalo Moving North; Bermuda Under Alert (FORECAST)

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Oct 14 (Reuters) – Hurricane Gonzalo strengthened to become a major Category 3 hurricane on Tuesday as it moved away from the northern Caribbean and headed toward Bermuda, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

The center of Gonzalo was moving northwest, away from the British and U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, prompting storm alerts for those areas to be lifted.

Most forecasts showed Gonzalo posing no threat to the mainland United States and moving further north into the Atlantic.

It could hit Bermuda late on Friday, and the island was put under a hurricane watch.

Gonzalo is the sixth hurricane of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season, which runs through the end of November. Forecasters in August predicted lower-than-usual activity for the season, with seven to 12 named storms and no more than two reaching major hurricane status.

Gonzalo was about 705 miles (1,135 km) south of Bermuda late on Tuesday and packed sustained winds reaching 125 miles per hour (205 km per hour), the center said.

A major hurricane is considered to be Category 3 or above with winds hitting at least 111 mph (178 kph).

“Gonzalo has a good chance of becoming the Atlantic’s first Category 4 hurricane since Oct. 2, 2011,” when Hurricane Ophelia’s winds reached 140 mph (225 kph), according to Jeff Masters, a hurricane expert with private forecaster Weather Underground.

Gonzalo would likely begin weakening by late on Thursday, but could still reach Bermuda “anywhere between a Category 1 and Category 3 storm”, he wrote in a blog post.

Forecast models showed it passing within 30 to 80 miles (48 to 129 km) of the island on Friday.

The Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico experienced only light to moderate rain and wind gusts on Tuesday, and no significant damage or loss of power was reported.

` Four Cuban Nationals have been Detained in Cuba for Having Planned Attacks on Military Installations ‘

#AceWorldNews – HAVANA – May 07 – Four Miami-based Cuban nationals have been detained in Cuba.

Having planned to carry out attacks on Cuba’s military facilities.

Cuban newspaper Granma reported on Wednesday that the suspects were detained on April 26 by the forces of the Interior Ministry.

Jose Ortega Amador, Obdulio Rodriguez Gonzalez, Raibel Pacheco Santos and Felix Monzon Alvarez were detained in the midst of their preparations for terrorist activity on the national territory of Cuba, the newspaper said.

The suspects admitted that they “planned to attack military facilities to provoke violence.”

Granma reported that three out of four suspects have visited Cuba several times from mid-2013 to plan the execution of planned terrorist attacks.

The suspects said the plan of the attack were developed by three others in Miami who have close ties with infamous terrorist Posada Carriles.

Granma (ENG) – Pertinent contact with appropriate United States authorities was made, in order to investigate these events and prevent, in a timely fashion, the actions of such individuals and terrorist organizations based in that country, which endanger the lives and security of persons in both nations.

` Second Member of `Cuban Five Spy Ring’ released from a `US’ Prison’ to then be Deported’

#AceWorldNews says a second member of the “Cuban Five” spy ring was released Thursday from a US prison, AP said.

Fifty-year-old Fernando Gonzalez also known by his alias, Ruben Campa, completed his sentence in Safford, Ariz., after spending more than 15 years behind bars.

He will be deported to Cuba as soon as possible, said Michelle Alvarez, spokeswoman for the Miami US Attorney’s Office.

The five men, who are hailed as heroes in Cuba, were convicted in 2001 in Miami on charges including conspiracy and failure to register as foreign agents in the US.

They were accused of trying to infiltrate US military bases.
