iciHaiti - Border : The Dominicans deploy an important military surveillance system
The Minister of the Presidency, Joel Santos, confirmed that the Dominican Government had intensified surveillance at all border points faced the increasing violence in Haiti "Everything is under control and we are ready if the situation worsens with our neighbors to whom we always wish for Peace."

The Dominican Army deployed a large contingent of armored units and helicopters to monitor the border, both by air and land, in response to intense shooting in Ouanaminthe which involved agents of the Haitian National Police ( PNH) regulars and members of the Protected Areas Brigade (BASP) and base 52 led in the area by former Senator and rebel leader Guy Philippe. The activities of the CODEVI free zone textile park have once again been suspended for the safety of Haitian and Dominican workers.

The population of Dajabón is in panic and the authorities are under tension due to the intense shootings which are taking place just a few meters between the two towns. Faced with this situation, the army deployed armored units and helicopters from the tenth battalion to ensure the protection of this part of the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

The Dominican Army maintains military reinforcements in the border area to guarantee security. A military convoy travels across the border through Dajabón to deal with any eventuality.

The Director of the Specialized Land Border Security Corps (Cesfront), Colonel Freddy Soto Thormann, reaffirmed that security was maintained in the border area. "So far, the border crossings of the Dominican Republic remain open, but if the situation on the Haitian side worsens, the military organizations, for reasons of national security, would temporarily close the border."
