Guyana, Venezuela's eastern neighbor and the fastest growing economy in the Western Hemisphere, has voiced concerns about Venezuelan actions near its border (CARICOM, Loop News, WiredJA). For over a century, Venezuela has claimed over two-thirds of Guyanese territory as its own, and the Maduro government has scheduled a controversial referendum for 3 December 2023 to vote on Venezuela's rights to that territory (Venezuela Analysis, US News & World Report, France 24). Accusations of Venezuela sending military forces to Ankoko Island alone would not count (Demerara Waves). Accusations from Associate Members would not count (CARICOM). For the purposes of this question, "Guyana" means the internationally recognized territory of the country, and both the accusation and the sending must occur during the question's open period to count.
