Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required



Reporter: Ezequiel Flores Contreras
At least three soldiers killed, three wounded and three others missing was the result of an ambush carried out last night by an armed group against a convoy of soldiers of the 34th Infantry Battalion who were travelling in private vans in the mountain region of municipality of Coyuca de Catalán, in the Tierra Caliente region.

According to a statement from the National Defense Secretariat (Sedena), the military personnel were guarding the El Pozo ranch, located in the town of Monte Grande and owned by the family of the PRI candidate to a local deputy for the region of Tierra Caliente, who was found executed yesterday in the urban area of ​​Ciudad Altamirano, Abel Montufar Mendoza, indicate the official reports.

The official report indicates that around 23:00 hours, the soldiers who guarded the private property of the Montufar family received the report of "the presence of armed men in the vicinity of the El Pozo ranch".




"When arriving at the place of the report, the military carried out reconnaissance, at which point they were attacked with gunshots by a group of unknown individuals, leaving three soldiers dead, three more wounded and three missing." , indicates the official bulletin.

The same reports refer to the soldiers travelling aboard "private trucks without license plates," including a blue Nissan, Frontier model and not on official army patrols.

The murdered soldiers of the 34th Infantry Battalion based in Ciudad Altamirano, were identified as Lieutenant Pedro Chávez González; Second sergeant, Patricio García Hernández, and Corporal Raúl Bernal.


While the wounded are: the corporals Ofelio Cruz Pérez and Juan Guadalupe Balleza, as well as the soldier Lenin Ocaña de la Cruz.

While the soldiers reported as missing are corporal, Apolonio Noriega Tinoco and soldiers Edgar Daniel Vázquez Murga and Juan Rivera Reyes.

The military authorities announced an operation in the area to try to locate the aggressor group and locate their missing comrades.

They also carried out searches for wounded people in hospitals in the municipality of Huetamo, Michoacán, neighboring town of Ciudad Altamirano, Guerrero.

  1. Why would they think it was ok to pull up to a private ranch in a blue frontier ? This was mistaken identity at the least. And at worst they were doing dirty business. Military uniforms are often stolen or replicated. Anyone would have thought they were sicarios undercover. Even other sicarios or other military

    1. Yeah no kidding. Also makes you wonder where the other 3 are, and if they were involved in some shady buisness.

    2. This says the 34th infantry battalion.Is this the 1 associated with the disappearance of the '43' if I'm not mistaken?If it is that explains a lot,that in this case these military guys were 'moonlighting' for some extra income.

    3. Yep seems shady as hell, 9 soldiers traveling on CIVILIAn trucks with no plates? Though a ranch where they just executed a politician, well thats kind of dumb, i don't think the marine will Cruise through Afganistán in an old beat up frontier Wearing their uniforms. Sitting ducks.

    4. Military personnel are known to have vested interests / alliances with cartels. A well known fact in many parts of Mexico’s regions. Political shifts and criminal alliances go hand in hand.
      The documentary series The Trade explains the relationship between government / cartel involvement. Where political parties dictate how / who can operate.

    10. Gold all over the state draws foreign criminals, also the free thinking revolutionaries the normal school isidro burgos are sick and tired of taking government bullcrap, like PRI CANDIDATES FOR SHIT or PRD, PAN, PVEM, Encuero Social, Movimiento Suidadano, and soldiers abusing everybody.
      Getting shot in the ass may serve some as a lesson, the military zone commander has some esplainin' to do, but wait until he pays the ransom for the 3 kidnapped ground meat...
      It would be so easy to restrict fuel for the criminals troques, but they may be on horses.
      Why not move families to safer areas?
      The government relocates peasants and burns their homes all the time, even the retarded guatermalans do that and make a military outpost in the rancho, later on the general can take title to the land and make hisself another "Parthenon" like Arturo "El Negro" Durazo Moreno, 5 Star General of the Mexican army, nobody messed around with him.

  8. Fuckkkk. Those 3 soldiers missing are going to be found in a couple days with no heads. lifeless bodies will be displayed in grotesque fashion warning any who oppose them will suffer the same fate.

    Is being captured alive worse then being killed? Nobody knows for sure if they will be killed or by some miracle make it back home alive. As sad as it is to say, but a quick death now might be the best choice for most instead of the days of torture they will almost certainly be facing now. It's very easy for us to say we rather be killed then captured, but when you're the one in that situation you might still have hope you'll somehow be rescued. Cant even imagine being faced with that decision. I feel that you'll turn into fight or flight mode and go on autopilot. Death now or hope that they dont torture you and you end up alive and rescued in the end. What a situation to find yourself in.

    On the other hand was the unit maybe doing something they shouldn't have been doing? Working for the wrong jefe and they got caught by an antagonist group. Lots of policia, federales, and army personnel have been ambushed this past couple months.

    If the trained men in the army cant even protect themselves then how the fuck are law-abiding citizens supposed to. Scary world we live in where kn Mexico this is happening and in the good ol USA you're more concerned with who the president put his dick into 15 years ago.

    4. 3:47 bring in "who the president was...15 years ago"
      That is the president of the Benghazi lobby and the Birther Movement, and it is about the collusion and the cover-up more than about the crimes that is bringing all the dirt out.

  9. When did killing Mexicans own Military become so common, that it’s just another headline that’s ignored? Can’t blame the gringos using drugs up north for the numbness in Mexico. Blame Trump, Obama, EPN and all the other political figures. Mexicans you own this, the kids you raise, the blind eye you turn.

    1. Mexico needs to pass a gun reform allowing all law abiding citizens to own. Yes, the USA has crime, but criminals here don't just worry about the police, they worry about the guy/gal not breaking the busting a cap in their ass! Guns are never going away, let the people have a fighting chance!

    2. 7:47 these soldiers were attacked by unknown assailants, a d left killed, wounded and kidnapped, Not by the whole mexico.

  11. Blue, Old Nissan frontier truck without plates and in camouflages they might be mistaken by army for being sicarios or maybe the the Sicarios mistook them for being rivals as lots of people that work as gunmen for cartel often dress camouflage and drive trucks without license plates

    1. The soldiers were guarding a PRI politician, presumably one that had received death threats for not taking the plata. The sicarios knew the soldiers would investigate any movement close to the house, so set up an ambush.
      The real target was the politician, the soldiers were just in the way so had to be dealt with.

      Delete
    2. They weren't guarding the PRI politician. They were searching "supposedly" for his murderers.....

    3. 5:49 the PRI candidate had already been executed...
      "The soldiers were called at about 23:00 hours" by the family who saw or heard "suspicious activity" but maybe the ambushers themselves made the call to drag the gauchos to the trap, they got themselves a lieutenant and a truckload of corporals.

      You are not supposed to arrive at a danger zone riding your horse or driving your confiscated jalopy truck, maybe send one driver ahead and get ambushers on the rear, it is a pity there were a lieutenant and a truckload of corporals...

    2. The 3 missing escaped and turned up at the Military barracks, they were not kidnapped, according to the latest reports

    3. So, they cut and ran and left their comrades to the mercy of the enemy, or they just escaped alive and then moved on.

  20. In Culiacan a group of soldiers were robbing businesses and private homes until they robbed a well connected person. Some general and police commander discussed it and the end result was to simply transfer the group of soldiers. No punishment whatsoever. How do I know this? My uncle was robbed twice while he was home. These soldiers might have been up to some5hing shsdy,the reality is no one really knows.

  24. You hit the wrong person with connections or (family) it will always go wrong once they investigate why they got touched! That's if someone sings like a yellow cannery! Everyone out to make money. Even if they are not the main cartel's doing the dirt, you got a lot of independent street guy's doing their own moves even the military has people that strain away from the farm. (That means they get greedy or lose their values).

  25. When I was in that region, there was a single police vehicle with mounted machine gun. It came driving real fast from a side dirt road and sped down the highway. Made me wonder what they wanted to get away from. Of the sicario crews for La FamMich, LosRojos and GU, La FamMich looked just like the green beret might have in nam. Except they were in a red chevy pickup. LR was jeans and t-shirts and BF vests. Glad to out. Feel sad for those who just want to live and make a living. After the cargnage in Iguala saw lots of civilian looking vehicles with armed occupants.
