A broad range of security forces have participated in the intensified efforts, including Soldiers from the Army’s 8th, 15th, 16th, 18th and 30th Brigades, anti-narcotics officers from the National Police, and members of both Joint Task Force Titán and the Vulcano Joint Task Force. The escalation, which began in late April, has targeted guerillas in the departments of Norte de Santander, Arauca, Boyacá, and Chocó — four historic ELN strongholds.
