An blackout has covered most of Venezuela over the past several days after the country’s main electricity generator, the Guri Dam, failed. The Maduro administration alleges that the failure was due to cyber attacks and pointed the finger at the US government that has called for Maduro’s ouster. Venezuela’s Communications Minister reported that a cyberattack had taken place against the dam’s computerized system forcing its turbines to stop. Venezuela intends to present evidence of the attack to the United Nations Human Rights Commission and to other international bodies. Meanwhile, US-backed “Interim President” Juan Guaido is using the crisis to call for the armed forces to back his efforts in ousting the Maduro government and tweeted, “electricity will return once the usurpation ends.”

set back by a new cyber attack on Saturday morning.
Maduro announced that he was ordering a massive distribution of food
and drinkable water starting Monday, as well as efforts to secure the
normal functioning of hospitals. Water Minister Evelyn Vazquez announced
on Sunday that water tanks were being deployed while the water pumping
system was getting up to speed.
On Friday, Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez told press that a
cyberattack had taken place against the “Ardas” computerized system of
the Guri Dam, targeting 3 of the 5 generators and forcing the dam’s
