Military and Sicarios shoot it out in Tamaulipas (Video)

Translated by Otis B Fly-Wheel for Borderland Beat from a Milenio article and additional news from Noreste

Subject Matter: Sicarios vs Military confrontation
Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required


Reporter: Milenio Digital
Elements of the State Police and Military had a confrontation with members of the Cartel del Golfo, on the outskirts of the Rio Bravo, Tamaulipas, at this time it is unknown if there are dead or injured.

According to a video shared on social networks, the Sicarios fled in a Cherokee armored jeep on the Rio Bravo - Valle Hermoso highway, when two groups of Military saw and engaged them.

In the images one can observe how a citizen shot the video of the confrontation from inside a restaurant. The Military elements fired at them for a full 30 seconds a breach 109.






After the gun battle the Military confiscated the armored Jeep, rifles and ammunition, but it is unknown if there were any casualties.

Unofficial version of events indicate that the Sicarios were members of a cell of Commander Pelochas, Metro 28, who has an arrest warrant for continuous confrontations with authorities of Reynosa and Rio Bravo.

Valor por Tamaulipas also has some photos taken after the confrontation which I have added below. There was a block on the other side of the highway bridge, where the Sicarios probably escaped to.







UPDATE FROM NORESTE

Confrontations leave 18 dead in Reynosa, Rio Bravo and Matamoros.

Sedena reported that 18 alleged criminals were killed and seven more detained during six confrontations that took place in Reynosa, Rio Bravo and Matamoros, in Tamaulipas, and in General Bravo in Nuevo Leon.

The confrontations later led to action by the organized criminals with blockades against the Military. As well as 18 deaths, Sedena reported they decommissioned an arsenal that included grenade launchers and grenades, rifles, as well as armored vehicles.

Edgar Luis Villegas Melendez, Operations Chief of the Army in this area, detailed that the attacks on Tuesday were coordinated and in some cases occurred in a simultaneous manner, in the towns of General Bravo, Reynosa, Matamoros and El Berrendo and Los Valadeces in Tamaulipas.

Sedena informed that in these places they detained five persons, and confiscated seven vehicles, four of them armored, as well as 28 firearms, 23 rifles and 5 pistols, 58 hand grenades, 10 grenade launchers, 34 40mm grenades, 229 magazines, and 10730 rounds of ammunition.

One hour after, in Reynosa, members of organized crime blocked arterial routes to impede the entrance of the Military into the city, and this prompted another confrontation.

More confrontations happened later between 15:15 and 18:00 first in General Bravo, Nuevo Leon. Sedena did not confirm how many criminals were killed in these latter clashes.

  2. Looks like the Jeep was abandoned before the soldados shoot it up. Why their wasn't any injured or dead after the smoke cleared.

    1. Either the dead/injured were taken away by their comrades and/or disposed of by the mil. Nobody shoots at a soldier and gets away with it.

      Regardless, looks like another hit to the Metros de Pelochas. Something tells me he will be going down before Panilo. Rightfully so, he's another back-stabber causing chaos in Reynosa and Matamoros.

      Team BB: any thoughts on the ~150 sicario shootout with the mil in Chihuahua? Possible translation to the front page?

    2. @2:13 You can definitely tell there's no one in the vehicle by the time the video starts from the lack of return fire from the Jeep. Not even a muzzle flash coming from the sicarios' vehicle. What kind of sicarios would sit there being lit up and not return a single shot? There may have been someone injured/dead in the Jeep, but the majority of the sicarios appear to have already fled by the time the tape started rolling.

    3. The other day someone put on codigo rojo that they were torturing some guys and they already had set one of them on fire. Then they found 3 burned individuals a few days later. How fucked up is reynosa?

    4. @8:36 I'm not surprised by that at all. Notice how the military never arrests anyone but prominent cell leaders and plaza bosses. Yet according to the Army deployment numbers in Tamaulipas, they are the ones doing most of the everyday police work. They're engaging in firefights with sicarios on a regular basis, but they hardly ever make arrests. I wouldn't be surprised if the sicarios in this situation didn't escape, but were executed somewhere else.

    5. I think they realize the Jeep is probably empty, but were just like "fuck it, might as well blow off a few rounds".

    2. Their empire went into shambles following the arrest of Coss. It all went downhill after X20 took out Gringo in 14'

      Hate to say it but 40 was right in that classic manta; there will never be cohesion without a solid leadership. CDG will always function like a disfunctional city gang, with or without "Senor de la O"...

    3. Everyone knows what happened as soon as oziel was taken then el kelin then carlos rosales. And the rest of the guys who were left were pieces of shit costilla el tormenta and lazcano where a bunch of assholes nothing but back stabbing innocent ppl killing bastards. Now this is their legacy. In reynosa is not just el pelochas. Theres comandante loquillo who is litterally a retarded cell leader and el betillo who is el toros nephew and sicario a kid whos dad and uncle got killed imagine what kind of little asshole he must be. And these 3 guys are wreacking havok in reynosa and rio bravo.

      Delete
    4. @8:46 if Lazca would became Leader of whole CDG(CENTRAL LEADER just like was Osiel) if TT and COSS M3 didnt bother him, CDG would be the most BIGGEST empire with its military Los Zetas which would be their henchmen forever

      Delete
    5. Maybe things will quiet down when Pelochas, Loquillo and Betillo are quieted down themselves?

    6. How so lazcano was an asshole. He was too violent and he was not from tamaulipas or to be more prcise je wasnt from matamoros. And there were many more high up on the chain.He wld of been a disaster as a boss. He didnt even last that much as boss of the zetas. And to the comment above. The reynosa situation has been going on since the desth of el toro. And it doesnt seem to be ending anytime soon.

  5. Would have been satisfying if they shot members of the cartel not just a vehicle with no one in it. Made for a good video tho

  6. Looks more like a training exercise. Pull up and shoot at any vehicule that looks suspicious. I'm sorry to say, but these Mexican military soldiers seem like amateur...

    1. 8:10. Exactly - and what about taking cover und aiming barrier blockade for some protection and accuracy! Lol! Unless maybe they know something we don't....golfos and/or Zetas can't aim to hit the side of a barn door! Lol

    2. Sol, you're trolling right? In case you're not here goes: PP is not effective in asymmetrical or urban combat scenarios (except if you're in a covert position like snipers or playing toy soldiers with platic figurines). Those Mexicans military men did exactly what they were supposed to do and NOT be a sitting duck in a prone position. Your comment is hilariously ludicrous because it's completely self-contradictory.

    4. I've never used a resume in life. But 4 those of you who have because you feel that you need it 2 move through life. Then you've got a lot 2 learn about how life really works. Come down into Mexico and see firsthand how far your so called resume gets you. And as far as tactics go 2 each his own. Whatever keeps you alive so be it. - Sol Prendido

    5. This was a bunch of military with the shoot first and ask questions later mentality. There was no one in the vehicle when they arrived. I can't even tell if they even hit the vehicle more than a few times. All you see is dirt flying all over the places so it's obvious they were impacting the over pass behind the Jeep. Even the last gun shot in the video was 20 feet high and to the left of the vehicle. Everything they did was all for show.

    6. Sol, two each his own? Lol, you're quite the keyboard tactician but a poor strategist. Be honest.

    3. Sorry 12:43 the other two comments have nothing but trash comments. General Bravo is an important plaza for CxG. The road of Monterrey to reynosa is what makes it important. But the fallout more likely was due to CxG members retracting to General Bravo to hide using the brechas that also connect both. The military must of been chasing them and thats why you had the confrontation there aswell.

    2. The Mexican military hardly ever report an accurate number of soldier killed in action. It seems like only when the public reports it or observers it first will the military gives more accurate numbers.

      Delete
    3. The Government will always hide or try to at least their casualties. They don't want the public and criminals know that they took hits. Just like when Mancho and his people did their thing with the helicopters and when Manuel Torres took some with him. They see it as they don't want to let anyone know that they're vulnerable.
