At least two sergeants of the Bolivarian National Guard has deserted, on Saturday night, 23, in Pacaraima, according to Colonel Georges Kanaam. They were involved in the conflict between protesters and GNB on the border with Brazil.

The Government of Roraima, through Sesau-RR (State Health Secretariat of Roraima), reported that in just over 24 hours, the HGR (General Hospital of Roraima) received 18 Venezuelan patients, most of them in a serious condition and with injuries caused by firearms.

On the border between Colombia and Venezuela, two truckloads of humanitarian aid were set on fire as Venezuelan military blocked a four-truck caravan with humanitarian aid and threw tear gas at protestors.

The border between Brazil and Venezuela in Roraima dawned calmer Sunday, 24. The flow of immigrants from Venezuela returned to the currency, despite the closing of the border. Venezuelans from Santa Elena de Uairen told the state that, despite the official closure of the border, the border guards themselves suggest that they cross into Brazil through the “trochas” – trails in the bush beside the road. There is still a GNB stock keeping customs, but no longer in column formation as there was yesterday.
