CDN Tropa del Infierno Ambush Soldiers in Nuevo Laredo, 8 Cartel Hitmen Killed

"HEARST" for Borderland Beat

Army soldiers and the National Guard were ambushed twice in one day by Tropa del Infierno hitmen of the Northeast Cartel (or Cartel del Noreste, CDN) in Nuevo Laredo, a border city within the state of Tamaulipas. Both ambushes led to full on gun battles, the result of which left 8 CDN hitmen dead.  On June 1 2021 at approximately 6:50 pm Army (SEDENA) soldiers were ambushed in the Madero neighborhood of Nuevo Laredo, which is on the southeastern side of the city. The ambush took place near Degollado and Durango street. The soldiers were ambushed by vehicles of armed men while they were travelling on Degollado street and after the armed men began shooting towards them, the SEDENA soldiers returned fire. A full-on gunfight ensued between the two groups. The ultimate result of this firefight was three dead cartel hitmen. Four long barrel firearms were seized afterwards. Reports differ on whether 2 SUVs were seized (as reported by Frontera al Rojo Vivo) or one SUV with armor plating (as reported by Excelsior).
  

Of note, the location of this firefight occurred just a few blocks away from the U.S. Consulate. U.S. diplomats announced on their social media account: "The U.S. Consulate is tracking reports of gunfire at various locations in Nuevo Laredo. U.S. government personnel are advised to shelter in place until 6 am on Wednesday, June 2, 2021. Please follow local media for updates." Roughly an hour later, a second confrontation took place in the Villas de San Miguel neighborhood of Nuevo Laredo, which is on the far west side of the city and a roughly 25 minute drive away. Cartel hitmen reportedly opened fire from inside a black Ford Explorer type SUV at National Guard members on San Eliseo street. 



The National Guard members are said to have returned fire and five cartel hitmen were killed. Very few details are available beyond this about the nature and circumstances of this gun battle. Five firearms and two vehicles were seized from the aggressors in the aftermath of this firefight. There are no reports of injuries or deaths on the armed forces side as of the writing of this story.  State level law enforcement officially confirmed eight hitmen were killed on June 1 2021 in Nuevo Laredo. However they clarified that they do not know exactly how the events unfolded due to the fact that the operation and investigation was carried out by SEDENA and the Attorney General's Office of the Republic (FGR). A majority of the news sources consulted write that the cartel hitmen were from La Tropa del Infierno (The Troop of Hell), an armed wing of Cartel del Noreste, a splinter group that emerged from the remnants of Los Zetas.

    2. I know right, they are not super humas, even if the death to kill ratio is far superior, one would expect at least one to die lol

    3. Maybe because the 8 dead persons were cartel people.

      Unless you're sure some of the dead were military

    4. Yes, they do die just like everyone else. However normal human beings don't choose to celebrate the deaths of people risking their lives to combat the actual shit storm that Mexico has become. On the other hand people don't mind so much celebrating the deaths of mass murdering, tweeker, rapist, extortionists. Hopefully you can understand that... but I won't hold my breath.

    5. Bola de pendejos, the problem is not if military got killed or if that part of the news is classified, the problem is exessive kills, no survivors or wounded, that means they got executed and were not given any other options, most prolly got set up by both GN and their own "cartel"

    1. It's harder to find news sources on cartel activity on the east, probably due to some censorship, but it's just as important as everywhere else. Maybe more so because it doesn't get the same amount of coverage.

Its a repetitive violent cicle that maybe only a group of racianal guys might brake, but i dont see that happening for a while

    1. @10:32 Indeed gent, "morale" is highly important at war and the army doesn't allow the real statistics to show, it could demotivate the soldiers a lot when the reality is that many of them die almost daily.
