According to the Cuban Minister for Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, US Special Forces descended in Puerto Rico and in the St Isdro base (Dominican Republic) between 9 – 13 February. US troops also flowed into other Caribbean Islands, but the US did not keep the de jure governors of these islands in the loop.

The Cuban Minister’s tweet (see above) raises the possibility of this being a US attack on Venezuela, shielded under the cover of humanitarian intervention.
