Via Twitter, Cabello stated that Capriles had violated the memory of the Venezuelan Head of State and his supporters.
Additionally, responding to Capriles' statements, which included criticism of the defense minister, ruling party Deputy Freddy Bernal voiced the Government's strong support for the Armed Forces.
