I hate the Spanish "j", it sounds like phlegm.

Last Friday on SS16 in Barletta, Apulia, a robbery against a security van has been carried out. A "military-style commando" hijacked three trailer trucks and positioned them in order to block accesses to the grade-separated road, then attacked the van with kalashnikovs and stuff.

Yesterday something very similar happened on the A14 between Acquaviva delle Fonti and Gioia del Colle, 100 km south of the previous attack, again in Apulia region. A trailer truck has been put perpendicular to the motorway and set on fire to block the security van on the road, while attackers used kalashnikovs again targeting the van's tyres.

In both cases attackers fled with part of the vans' loads.

A Far West showdown is going on in Apulia

I think that security vans should be camouflaged, maybe with a fake advertisement of something else on them. Too many times you hear of such criminal attacks.
They should also use different vehicles for different trips and take weird detours avoiding the most obvious route from A to B.

They knew with too many details when, where, how the van was going to go. I say inside job.

I'm pretty sure that a "military-style commando" capable of hijacking three trailer-trucks (to block a road) and using kalashinkovs and further similar stuff would perfectly know which van to attack even if you make it look a laundry-van or a pizza-delivery van. And even if you constantly use a different vehicle.

Fortunately it's not routine here. Every country had its criminal cases.

These robberies happen everywhere, though infrequently.

When they happen, they make big news.

The potential pay-off of robbing such vehicles is much higher than robbing a bank nowadays.

San Demetrio

Imbocco e sovrappasso su contrada Masseria San Demetrio provenendo da Siracusa. Si tratta della galleria più lunga, trafora il colle San Demetrio-Primosole, dove si trovano il Bivio Iazzotto, l'Isola ecologica, le Grotte Primosole e tante signorine "in cerca di lavoro".


Idem.


Imbocco.

Mi scuso per la pessima qualità di questa e della seguente immagine.

I think in the Catania-Syracuse section there are 10 or 11 tunnels, the longest being "San Demetrio" at almost 3000 m.
