The Tropa Del Infierno Has An Operations Manual

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

Video translation is as follows:

The Tropa del Infierno, the armed wing of the Northeast Cartel, has an operations manual that every member carries and gives details of what to do and how to act when the authorities try to capture their top boss.

This was announced by the journalist Juan Alberto Cedillo, an expert in security and drug trafficking, who revealed that this criminal organization distributes the manual among its members. If faced by possible operations from the government of President Andrés Manual López Obrador. 

The manual on what to do in the event that an attempt is made to arrest its leader Juan Gerardo Treviño Chávez aka El Huevo, according to the journalist, was created based on the experience in Culiacán.

The author of the books "Los Nazis En Mexico" and "La Cosa Nostra En Mexico" points out that the manual is practically based on the way in which the Sinaloa Cartel operated to achieve the liberation of Ovidio Guzmán López, son of Chapo Guzmán, when authorities detained him on October 2019.

On that occasion, the drug traffickers of the Sinaloa Cartel had a violent reaction and hundreds of hitmen blocked the streets of the city. They took a score of soldiers hostage and attacked buildings where military families live.

In short, they would close avenues with narco blockades and cover some of the main roads with caltrops. In addition they would also send vehicles firing into the air to simulate shootouts and create chaos.

According to the journalist, they would add possible kidnappings and hostage-taking to negotiate.

The Northeast Cartel is considered one of the bloodiest cartels. The members of their armed wing the Tropa del Infierno are known for their brutality. And they dedicate themselves to taking care of the interests of the cartel and facing their rivals.

This armed group dresses in military fatigues similar to those used by the Mexican Navy. They travel in pick-up trucks or in their Improvised Armored Fighting Vehicles (IAFVs), large armored vehicles that are equipped with artillery and which allow them to face their rivals.

This group of hit men is also accustomed to carrying out roadblocks in broad daylight
