Chaos in Reynosa because of Narco Blockades; Marines attend the emergency


Reporter: Proceso Redaction
Elements of the Marines continued operations this morning in various sectors of Reynosa, Tamaulipas, earlier during the evening the operatives answered the call when a State emergency alert was activated because of blockages of streets and avenues.

According to information given in the daily "El Manana de Reynosa", the first reports of blockades and paralysis on the roads and arteries registered around 21:45 Wednesday, which obligated the Municipal Government to send out a Yellow alert in its face book and twitter accounts at 22:12.




"Possible situation of risk, blockades on Maestro Boulevard and Mil Cumbres Boulevard and also Hidalgo Boulevard. One recommends that precautions should be taken, and should you need to travel it should be by alternative routes", advertised the official message.

According to the daily, at the height of succession of events the city was partially paralyzed, after trailers, freight trucks, urban buses and private vehicles were stolen and used to make barricades at strategic points to hinder the mobilization of troops.

He stressed that for two hours motorists underwent a harrowing situation because the routes to their homes were shut off and they had to look for alternative routes to reach a safe destination.

At El Periferico, at the junction of Monterrey and Anzalduas freeways, which connect to the Reynosa Mission international bridge, El Manana found that the blockades had strangled the traffic by 11pm.

In addition access to shopping malls in the area remained blocked until troops began clearing the routes.

Trucks are blocking Boulevard Hidalgo at La Cima, there is no way through to Monterrey, all access is closed off, were some of the comments made by citizens broadcast on social networks in the desire to provide mutual protection during the emergency, the newspaper said.

The closure of the streets and avenues occurred simultaneously and prevented access to the following colonias, Neuvo Mexico, Puertas del Sol, Las Cumbres, Narciso Mendoza, La Canada, Valle de Bravo, San Jose Riberna, Jarachina Norte, Las Arecas, Tamaulipas 3, Lopez Portillo and Carlos Cantu.


Valor por Tamaulipas reports a low flying Marines Helicopter over the area around the Reynosa bridge crossing, and several chases by the Marines of armed civilians, who threw metal spikes into the road, and two loud bursts of gunfire were heard from the Marines Helicopter.

    2. It was almost certainly Metros , the same day El Chuy was assasinated in Reynosa, so it could be linked to this event, but that is speculation. but the location where he was killed was less than 1 kilometer from the International bridge and right next to Boulevard Maestro where one of the blocks was put up.

    3. The Metros don't mess around

    4. Its the cdg reynosa faction most likely. El comandant toro has run out of time. But hes making it hard to get captured

      Delete
  4. As quoted the Marines were pursuing sicarios, the blocks were put in place to stop reinforcements arriving by road. The Marines only have 3 blackhawk helicopters, and probably only one , possibly two are in service at any time due to maintenance schedules/training.
    As to who did it? that would be speculation, but given the location it would be Cartel del Golfo most probably.

    1. They only have 3 for the city, state or country?

      Delete
    2. They only have 3 that were given by the USA as part of the Merida initiative. Blackhawks cost a lot of money, but can fly at night as they have built in infra red cameras. Marines do have helicopters, but not of the same quality and capability of the Blackhawks.

      Delete
    3. They have over 52 combat helicopters in Mexico from the USA and another 100 or so as transports from various countries.

      Delete
    4. Sounds like the same problem American Marines get, but still kick more ass.

      Delete
    5. Maybe but the Marines only have 3 black hawks, they are 680 million dollars each. The army have 3 as well I believe, but Mexico have ordered another 12. That will be 18 in total when they are all delivered

      Delete
    6. Otis blackhawks aint 680 mil. Each, google it.

      Delete
    7. $680 million? You could buy like 3 C-5 Galaxies for that. Blackhawk helicopters are around $20m - $30m.

      Delete
    8. 680 million dollars Otis?? More like $10-12 million each.

    9. "They only have 3 that were given by the USA as part of the Merida initiative"
      The big bad gringos and their "mierda" initiative as mad millie endlessly says

    10. Bro...that's not even close...Blackhawk helicopters are about 7-8 million per unit. 6 million new and another 2 million for infrared, avionics, etc.

      Delete
    11. No offense Otis cause I like the your articles, but they do not cost 680 million per helicopter.

      Delete
    12. Blackhawks are not the only helicopters in service there. And all helicopters have the ability to fly IFR, VFR being better since it means you can actually see.

      Delete
    13. No I admit I was wrong, that cost is for the whole shipment of 18 blackhawks, training and support staff

  15. What a rogue state. The Prez should flood the whole area with Marines by having a permanent deployment there. The 5-0 don't do nothing.

  16. Everyone should just stop fighting and be about peace and love, what are they trying to accomplish? Power isn't living, living isn't about power. It's about being with your loved ones and trying to be the happiest you can be.

    1. The different police corporations have their not so different needs for money, and they must earn it on the field of having no honor, gangs enhance the economics, eliminating a few RIva gangs is supposed to be the solution, there is no room for love, just for screwing somebody up, then collecting all they have...

  17. Blackhawks were given by the USA... wait Mexico doesn't want weapons from the US.

    1. Consider this, when Menchos convoy was engaged by special forces and their helicopter shot down with the loss of nine lives, if Mencho had been facing three blackhawks armed with two general electrics miniguns each, Mencho would most probably be dead now and all the men with him. H2 found out to his cost just how deadly this Heli/weapon combination is.
      The sooner Mexico receives it full compliment of 18 Black hawks, the better as its all weather, night fighting ability and firepower with advanced avionics will give them the advantage they need.

      Delete
    2. Not all Blackhawks have mini guns and mini guns can be mounted on other helicopters or vehicles. The advantage needed isn't just weapons. It's a MOUT and guerrilla warfare, it's the same issue we have in Iraq, Afganist谩n and Syria, we have better weapons and men. They have the upper hand because it's their home and we don't have enough intel to know who the enemy is, where he is and who is working with and for him. To make things worse some of the guys who are suppose to be our guys are really working for them and feeding them Intel on us.

    3. Are they manpad proof I heard Gaddafi had a shit load when the United states attacked him and destroyed his nation and sent them back into the stone age. You do realize that the chopper that was shoot down was most likely brought down by a manpad and not an RPG. Wasn't their a picture of a Linea member from Juarez with one.

  18. Why do the cartels hate mexico so much.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think they do to an extent. Up until recently -last couple of years, Mexico's government had been tacitly allowing the cartels to operate. They all made money doing so, but was the people started to turn on the government the government turned on the cartels.

      Delete
    2. Cartels need no turning on, they are like the government's front line on the criminal side and the government back up on the legal side, all work for federal police officers, many of them former military, like on the US pues.
      If you pay attention, mexican pooliticians are the ones making off with all that money, but all of them stick it in some bank or another, like Carlos salinas de gortari, and his brother Raul and epn, all of them.
      "el que no transa no avanza", and the narcos' sicarios are the ones who never ever ever advance...except for very few that are getting extradited and being kept in black dark holes incommunicado with iron masks to keep them silent.
