In March 1961, the TEXACO refinery in Santiago de Cuba was attached. The objective was to knock down the electricity towers. The action did not have an efficiency of one hundred percent, since the members of the operation that supplied the dimensions of the towers miscalculated the quantity of the explosives. Nevertheless they achieved a blackout and the towers did not fall in its entirety. The group was transported by the LCI BARBARA J, in which Executive Officer was Captain Osvaldo Inguanzo Sabatier. It is to emphasize that the American adviser William "Rip" Robertson, acting against the orders of the CIA, disembarked and participated in the operation. Unpublished photo appeared in the archives of the Brigade

After the attack, they took this photo, celebrating the success of the mission
