Santo Domingo, RD.
The worsening crisis caused by the fuel shortage in Haiti further complicates the outlook for the crisis in the neighboring country.
Information provided by international news agencies over the weekend indicated that fuel shortages forced some hospitals to stop receiving patients and commercial banks announced that they would only open their doors from today on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. afternoon.
The EFE agency explained that this fuel shortage is mainly due to insecurity and the closure of roads and streets set up by gangs that control the main areas of Port-au-Prince, where the fuel tanks are located.
After the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the streets of the neighboring country are in chaos as armed gangs reign supreme due to the lack of government authority.
The Dominican military command, led by the Minister of Defense, Luciano Diaz-Morva, remains vigil and constantly monitors the situation in Haiti in the face of threats posed by political instability in Haiti.
The Director General of the Specialized Land Border Security Corps (Cesfront), Brigadier General Frank Mauricio Cabrera Rizk, confirmed that the borders are operating in a normal manner, and are controlled within the highest security standards in order to ensure trade exchange between Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
He noted that due to the lack of access to fuel plaguing the majority of Haitians, the Dominican state arranged on humanitarian grounds to let them in so they could refuel.
He noted that at the moment there are no threats in the Dominican territory other than traditional threats, so additional measures to those already in place were not considered.

Pedernales reporter Odalis Baez reported that unknown people were involved in spreading false messages saying armed Haitians were entering Pedernales, which made relatives living outside the province worried.
