The political crisis in Venezuela turned violent Friday as forces loyal to opposition leader Juan Guaido clashed with socialist President Nicolas Maduro’s military in an attempt to admit American aid into the impoverished country.

“Trucks driven by supporters of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido nearly rammed into a blockade by security forces still loyal to embattled President Nicolas Maduro in an attempt to reach aid in Colombia,” reports Fox News.

“Images show a red truck trying to forcefully pass through a checkpoint in Mariara, in northern Venezuela a few hours outside of Caracas, on Thursday as the security forces appeared to stand their ground,” adds the article.

The clashes come just weeks after the Trump administration officially recognized Guaido as the Interim President of Venezuela following a highly-contested national election.
