Alliances, ruptures and the consolidation of criminal organizations make up the most recent map of drug trafficking in Mexico, where 15 groups define themselves as cartels and have generated a wave of violence over the control of places, the distribution of drugs and various criminal activities, especially the practice of illegal fuel takes known as "Huachicoleo". 

Guanajuato has become the epicenter of a war between the Cartel of Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG) and the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel, particularly for the theft of fuel from Pemex pipelines or huachicoleo .

The Sinaloa or Pacific Cartel is going through an internal struggle, led by the sons of Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán , know as  "Los Chapitos" or "Los Menores" and the faction led by Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada.

This is revealed by intelligence reports of the National Security Commission (CNS), through the Federal Police, and the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) updated to July 2018. 



Consulted on the recomposition of drug trafficking in the country, the head of the CNS, Renato Sales Heredia, maintained that there is a dispersion of the cartels that has increased the violence. 

"This has happened precisely in border areas, in ports and in places like Guanajuato because of the issue of the huachicol , an entity in which groups that split up from the Jalisco Nueva Generacion Cartel, CJNG and other groups have appeared to face each other . 

What we have on the border and in Colima is the market that has to do with some drugs in particular.

"This dispersion of the criminal groups has also generated the increase in homicide rates."

THE HEAVY GROUPS:

The reports consulted by MILENIO reveal that they are 15 the most important criminal organizations operating in the country.

It is the New Generation Jalisco Cartel (CJNG); the Sinaloa Cartel; the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel; The Zetas ; the Northeast Cartel; the West Cartel; the New Juarez Cartel and the Gulf Cartel. 

Also Los Viagras ; the Cartel of Tijuana Nueva Generación, CTNG ; The Arellano Felix; La  Familia ; Los Beltrán Leyva; the Independent Cartel of Acapulco (CIDA) and the Cartel Nueva Plaza.

In recent weeks there has been a rebound in the rivalry between the CJNG and the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel for the theft of hydrocarbons and narcomenudeo in Guanajuato. 

In Baja California, executions are linked to the struggle between the Sinaloa-Los Arellano Félix and Jalisco-Tijuana Nueva Generación , ie CJNG and CTNG ,alliances for dominating retail drug sales. 

According to federal authorities, in Chihuahua, especially in Ciudad Juarez, the offensive of La Línea against the Los Aztecas gang for the control of the sale of drugs prevails , "which adds to its confrontation with the Sinaloa cartel that seeks to consolidate the crystal meth market. "

In Guerrero, Acapulco has remained the main focus of attention due to the rivalry between Beltrán Leyva and CIDA, who seek to handle extortion and drug dealing . 


Other conflicts prevail in Michoacán, between CJNG and Los Viagras: 

In Jalisco between the CJNG and the New Plaza; the entity occupies the third place for the number of narco laboratories detected and destroyed; from December 2012 to July 15, 2018, there have been 68. 

The internal war continues in Sinaloa between fractions of that cartel, which increased after the recapture and extradition of "El Chapo" Guzmán to the US; while in Veracruz the battle is between the CJNG and Los Zetas .

The National Defense points out that in Colima where the CJNG, the Sinaloa Cartel and La Familia Michoacana operate , while there is a bloody struggle between the first two criminal organizations. 

In Baja California the rivalry is between the Sinaloa Cartel and CJNG, as well as between Tijuana Nueva Generación, CTNG and Sinaloa, the latter based in Baja California Sur. 

According to the Sedena, in Tamaulipas the fight is between the Gulf Cartel, the Zetas and the Northeast Cartel, as well as several divisions of both groups. 

On July 20, the Army found in the municipality of Nueva Ciudad Guerrero apparel with American-style military camouflage: 61 jackets, 147 pants and 138 pixelated camisoles.

The Gulf Cartel is based in Zacatecas and the CJNG in Aguascalientes, while the Sinaloa Cartel operates in Durango, which fights against the Cartel del Poniente, especially for the huachicoleo .

    2. youre somewhat correct yet theres a reason and its dine this way purposely, CJNG since becoming a paramilitary grouo to going into a fully indeoendent cartel started its bussiness with a different msrket in mind. not controlling trafficking plazas is something they didnt aimed for because they where not interested in routes north, they didnt care about trafficking to the US. There is a reason why their first invasions where Veracruz and Colima, They wanted control of a port on the Pacific where they received shipments of chemicals from China, which are then used in Jalisco to make meth, and then send the deugs to the port on the Atlantic where it woukd be shipped to Europe and other markets, while a cartel seeks to expand north and south (input from colombia, output to the US) CJNG spread from west to east (input from asia, output to europe) tijuana and other areas they just accepted to work with struggling groups of those areas and those groups started claiming cjng.

  5. The reason you don't hear much about the sinaloa internal war is because they go and fight out in the sierra away from the people up in the mountains so nobody who is not a hitman doesn't get hurt thats the sinaloa style para ajustar cuentas

    1. The cartels of today remind me of the gang landscape in the USA right now. Back in the day, you had maybe 3 or 4 big gangs in the US. Over time, the “popularity” of being in a gang increased exponentially. As a result, a lot of so called sub sets of 10-15 guys would create their own gang with affiliation to an original organization...ie...brick squad, OTF, Tooka gang, Piru....These newer cartels in Mexico are pretty much the same concept.

  14. The fight in Juarez between the Aztecas and Linea has nothing to do over drugs. It has to do with one of the captains from the Aztecas switching sides to La Linea. Also La Linea snitched on Tablas .

    1. The Azteca captain that switched sides from Azteca to Linea had the full support from La Linea because he is a born and bred Mexican. Not just this but Linea wanted to make him in charge of all Azteca dealings in Mexico without regard that other Aztecas including some born in the U.S. were in line for the job. Everybody should know the truth the way these people work.

    2. Its funny cus in the usa prison gangs are a zero tolerance on snitching. The mexicans shld learn that shit. In mexico snitching is ok. Fuck that.

      Delete
    3. 9:00 your stupid! U.S. Gangs have got nothing on Mexican cartels.
      Cartels snitch against rivals to avoid further bloodshed. U.S. gangs committ but a fraction of the bloodshed cartels committ.
      In Mexican prisons also prisoners give out info but only after a serious torture session that even the U.S. armed forces would evny!
      Grow up and stop living in a childs world comparing cartels with gangs!
