Fighting in Nuevo Laredo enters 3rd day

A reported third day of gunfights between Mexican Army units and armed suspects took place in the border town of Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas Monday afternoon, according to various Mexican news reports.

As of Monday evening gunfights between Mexican Army soldiers and armed suspects have been reported on the road to the airport in Nuevo Laredo.  Earlier Twitter reports had mentioned two international bridges were the locations of roadblocks put up by drug gang shooters, but it was later confirmed that the bridges mentioned meant two bridges that lead to the airport.

Reports from El Norte news daily website Monday evening claimed  a number of dead and wounded armed suspects at the hands of army troops, but those reports will remain unconfirmed as all Mexican federal government entities are under restrictions under Article 41 of the Mexican Constitution not to publish government propaganda during federal elections.

At least one pursuit and gunfight took place on Avenida Reforma at about 1530 hrs when a Mexican Army road patrol encountered a convoy of armed suspects travelling aboard several pickup trucks.  Attempts by the army patrol to pursue were stopped as taxis, trucks and cars were, presumably carjacked, left in the path of pursuing security forces.

Roadblocks have been reported at the commercial zone to include Paseo de la Reforma hotel, avenidas Monterrey and Lago de Chapala, the airport roads and the road to Piedras Negras, Coahuila or Mexico Federal Highway 2.

Roadblocks have also been reported in Bulevar Luis Donaldo Colosio and near the intersection of, Avenida Reforma and Cesar Lopez de Lara.

Nuevo Laredo is generally considered to be Los Zetas territory, but that drug gang has been under considerable pressure from Gulf and Sinaloa drug cartel operatives in the city who have threatened to end Los Zetas' dominance in the city

  12. The Army and Chapo are trying to cut off the Zs source of drug income by taking away direct access to the border.

  13. I prefer that Zs and Chapo all kill hell out of each other, that the Military kill what is left. We all know there will always be drugs and criminals BUT its just OK if they kill each other, that is a good thing.

  16. Really,so a couple of firefights and deaths,and the Z stranglehold on Nuevo Laredo,is coming to an end?C,mon man,its going to take a lot more than this.A few mantas,corpse's,threats,and the Z fall away from one of the major squares?There hasn't even been that many major fights,and everyone getting excited?I don't get some of these comments and opinions at all?As for The Lazca,they should call him the Fantasma.This dude aint no fool,who the hell knows where he is?But that dude is a stone bad ass.

  19. can someone translate this:

    Mensaje para el Pueblo:

    NO SE PREOCUPEN, NO SEAN PARANOICOS ESTO PRONTO SE VA ACABAR. ESTO UN REACOMODO. PRONTO SE VAN ACABAR LAS EXTORCIONES, SECUESTROS, DERECHO DE PISO. HABRÁ PAS SIN Z SE VIVIRA SIN MIEDO.

    Pueblo, no nos tenga miedo, Nuestra gente esta completamente identificada.
    Por eso decidimos rotular las trokas. Traen la leyenda de “C.D.G.” y “XXX M3 ”
    XXX M3 = X CGD, X Gente del Chapito, X La Familia Mich., M3= M.P. al Servicio.

    Están Rotuladas para que el ejército no nos cofunda y no confundirnos. ya que habido rencillas. en diferentes puntos.

    Las trokas que no estén rotuladas o con una Z . son guarros o setillas. Nomás no se atraviese si ve balaceras, déjenos trabajar para erradicar esta basura.

    La prensa esta callada por parte del acuerdo., le damos los aplausos al Grupo Reforma por este espacio no hay de otra. es la única forma.

    Gente todo este pedo es por la nueva alianza entre el Chapo, CDG y la Familia. La gota que derramo el agua fue la presión de la sociedad por la muerte de los chavitos de la fiesta de Juárez y tantas otras chingaderas.

    El protegido del gob. El chapito en conjunto con la nueva alianza se levantaron en armas para ching.. a los Z por que estos últimos han desvirtuado el negocio del trasiego de la droga. Con sus Levantones, Cobro de piso. etc. Últimamente con sus pendejadas, valiéndole madre la libertad y tranquilidad del pueblo mexicano.

    El Chapito, CDG y la familia, en este acuerdo se va a respetar las plazas, no se van a cobrar mas cuotas, van a estar prohibido los secuestros entre otras ching.

    Todo esto es por la alianza, en este acuerdo el Gob. Fed. Se comprometió a dar retirada al EJM (Ejercito Mexicano) en menos de 3 años. Siempre y cuando existan las condiciones y este controlado este pedo. Para así dar paso libre al negocio. sin violencia. ya que esto nos a pegado a todos. en cualquier forma.

    Gente de Reynosa: NO Manden a sus hijos a la escuela. eviten salir, si no es importante. hasta nuevo aviso, ya saben lo que esta pasando en las calles.

    Gente de Monterrey: Sigan sus vidas normalmente, pero estén al pendiente de cualquier situación no entren en paranoia.

    Si la gente les quita la troka déjesela no exponga su vida de cualquier forma la recupera.

    Gente quiten los vidrios polarizados, no se pasen, no ande quemando llanta por que se confunde.

    Papas verifiquen a sus chiquillos. Jr. Cuiden que no se crean narcos. por que se confunde con la gente y le dan piso.

    El Gob. y la prensa no están hablando o están virando las atenciones. esto esta acordado.
    Estamos en “guerra” pronto pasara.

    Si eres Z correle porque hay viene el monstruo.
    Para los Guarros los granadazos son para que se alineen con la nueva.
    Guera Barbie después sigues tu.

    “Gente no se preocupe si esta “alineado” no hay pedo, pero si no Correle.”
    Y Zetillas como ustedes dicen pónganse bien pilas por que la compañía ya valió.

    Y no chillen con sus mantas, por que ya nadie los pela.

    La Nueva FEDERACION

  23. The Mexican army needs to be firing missiles from choppers at these bastards as they're trying to escape. To hell with trying to track them on the roads. Just kill them from the air.

  24. Zetas probably already send reinforcements to Nuevo Laredo. When the war started the CDG kicked them out of all the towns they controlled along the matamoros reynosa border, and were losing Nuevo Laredo until another 750 men were sent to keep from losing that corridor. That is there main plaza. Chapo is not going to go head on until his forces grow in number but will continue picking them off.

  25. April 24, 2012 6:35 PM .Who has he/they picked off?A couple of halcones,and dealers?I really don't get all this hysteria about this situation.
    Where are the Z getting annihilated?We are talking of an organization that is said to number more than the others.But according to people posting on here,the Z are being decimated?Nothing has happened of any huge note,there hasn't even been any names taken out,not even mid-level,yet a lot of people are saying some crazy things.Its going to take much more than a couple of mantas and bodies to get rid of these fuckers.The best thing would be for leaders to be killed in all this shit.Then maybe we might start getting somewhere,but i doubt it.
