For at least a week, the members of the specialized body of land border security (CESFRONT) dispatched to Dajabon, during several interventions have seized dozens of jJerricans , cans and other containers of fuel that Haitian smugglers try to make smuggle into Haiti where fuel is becoming increasingly scarce https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28623-haiti-flash-shortage-of-fuels-or-organized-scarcity.html

Thursday on the binational bridge over the Massacre River, which connects Dajabon to Ouanaminthe in Haiti, the CESFRONT intercepted and seized 95 gallons of gasoline and 50 gallons of diesel.

Colonel José Manuel Durán Infante, Director General of CESFRONT, said that the men under his command, in accordance with General Rubén Darío Paulino Sem, the Minister of Defense of the Dominican Republic, were careful not to threaten security in their zone of responsibility (with the Haitians) as it had been in February 2019 when it had been necessary to militarize the Dominican service stations https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-26989-haiti-rd-haitians-furious-against-the-militarization-of-the-dominican-c.html to fight against purchases of fuel by Haitians, destined to the black market in Haiti, a highly lucrative traffic.
