Venezuela’s armed forces have shot down two unidentified planes violating the country’s airspace, Venezuela’s Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez posted on his Twitter account.

The minister posted photos of two light airplanes saying nothing about the fate of the crews, Itar-Tass reported.

Such incidents have occurred regularly since Venezuela in May 2012 passed a law on protection of its airspace. The aircraft are considered to be used for drug trafficking from Colombia to Central and Latin America.
