According to the Cali newspaper’s website, guerrillas of the FARC’s 6th front fired homemade mortars to a police station in the town of Cajibio and at a populated area in the rural municipality of El Tambo.
No one was injured in either of the attacks, but the attack on El Tambo damaged the local school and four homes.
The Cauca department was submitted to dozens of FARC attacks last year, but saw relative peace for months after the Colombian army killed the FARC’s supreme commander, “Alfonso Cano” in the north of the department.
In the municipality of Mondomo, state forces clashed with rebels to end a guerrilla roadblock that caused a mile-and-a-half traffic jam on the Pan-American highway between Cali and Popayan.
The newspaper attributes the attacks on the FARC’s 6th and 8th front, both highly active in the area.
