US military planes delivered tons of humanitarian aid to the Colombian border city of Cucuta on Saturday.

The cargo was delivered by two of three scheduled Air Force C-17 cargo planes from Homestead Air Reserve Base in Florida.

The shipment, which reportedly included food and medicine, was part of a US pledge to send humanitarian assistance to the self-proclaimed president of Venezuela Juan Guaido.

“People in Venezuela are starving. Hospitals don’t have medicine. Young people are thrown into prison for no reason. These are all the direct result of Maduro and his regime,” USAID Administrator Mark Green said during a ceremony at the airport.

It is not clear how the aid will enter the Latin American country. The Venezuelan military, which supports Maduro, has blockaded the border crossing at Tienditas international bridge.
