  • As several Iranian tankers approach the Caribbean Sea, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has dispatched anti-air missiles and long-range rocket artillery to several islands off the Venezuelan coast amid fears the US may try to intercept the vessels.
  • Venezuela’s S-300 air defense systems are notably absent from the drills.
  • ​Meanwhile, the first of five Iranian tankers loaded down with fuel is nearing the Caribbean Sea, roughly two days’ sailing from La Guaira.
