Colombian Rebel Groups Battle Each Other

A short segment of jungle combat footage follows a combined contingent of ELN and FARC rebels maneuvering under fire during an engagement against militants of the Gulf Clan in the vicinity of Bolívar.


Although the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) signed a peace agreement with the Colombian government in 2016, not all factions of the group supported the deal and remain in armed opposition to the government.


Although the National Liberation Army of Colombia (ELN) and the FARC are former enemies, they eventually formed an alliance and now the dissidents of FARC and ELN interoperate in parallel when mutually beneficial.


The Gulf Clan has become the most powerful criminal organization in Colombia. Not only do they specialize in narcotics trafficking, but illegal mining and various racketeering enterprises as well.
