"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

Video translation is as follows:

They were hours of uncertainty in Matamoros, Tamaulipas. Armed attacks, blockades and citizens taking cover where they could.

Criminals shot at soldiers while fleeing from them. Vehicles were stolen and set on fire to avoid being pursued.

Through Twitter, the governor ordered the deployment of State Forces. Take a look at how this truck was used by criminals. This is how some of them were arrested.

The situation was controlled and the city of Matamoros was on alert amid the risk of more attacks on Friday night

This Saturday morning, in a statement, the State Coordination Group for the Construction of Peace in Tamaulipas confirmed the attack against military personnel and the State Police itself, which was repelled.

The ending balance is 4 arrested and 3 dead. 2 of them are members of the so-called Gulf Cartel. In addition to a deceased woman and 2 people with minor injuries, all of them civilians.

One of the deceased is El Tigre. Who according to intelligence data served as head of spies, hitmen, and plaza boss for the Nuevo Progreso area.

He was considered a priority objective for the justice of Tamaulipas and the United States.
