Haiti - FLASH : Failure of the anti-gang operation in Village de Dieu, several police officers killed, others injured
Friday for the 3rd consecutive day the National Police of Haiti and its special units launched a strong anti-gang operation in the Village de Dieu.

Ambushed by the heavily armed men of Chief "Izo" of the "5 Segon" Gang who control the Village of God, the area quickly became a scene of urban guerrilla warfare.

During the intense exchange of fire between the police and the men of "Izo", 3 agents of the special unit Swat team were killed (Standley Eugène, Ariel Poulard and Georges Renoit Vivender Alexis) and at at least 8 other police officers injured, several seriously, who were rushed to Bernard Mevs hospital.

During this operation, the PNH suffered a serious setback and a humiliating defeat. The bandits seized 2 armored vehicles, one of which was set on fire and took away large caliber automatic weapons and PNH bulletproof vests.

Bursts of automatic weapon fire were heard all morning in the Village de Dieu neighborhood fueling the terror of the population ...

At the beginning of the afternoon in a televised intervention broadcast on the Facebook platform (scheduled the day before as part of his weekly talks with the population "Ti Kozri ak pèp"), President Jovenel Moïse at the beginning of his talk mentioned the drama of the failure of the police intervention "What happened in Village de Dieu today is appalling. Police officers fell under the bullets of the bandits, armored vehicles were set on fire. They fell on the battlefield, they are heroes."



So far no official results of the intervention have been made public by the PNH.
