    it's just CNJG fighting for the territory...it's a border town so very valuable drug route considering it's one of the busiest port of entry in the country. mexico sent 3,000 soldiers along the border towns since there were other attacks. it seems to have calmed down. i'm keeping an eye on this because on thursday i'm driving through there to go to rosarito for the baja beach festival. mexico sent quite a few special forces soldiers as well to TJ so it should remain calm. they know there's a ton of tourists atm especially bc of the festival.

    the next morning after all the fallout mexico sent their most elite unit, GAFE soldiers, they're a tier 1 unit.



    very badass soldiers that never lose to the cartel. my uncle was one. he'd tell me stories of they would just get dropped off in the jungle and go arrest cartel people and burn down weed crops.

    mexico knows they can't let their tourist industry get fvcked with, so they'll gain control quickly.

    She watches the news. So I'm guessing she knows what she's talking about. She says innocent people are being killed and over 100 Oxxo stores have been burned to the ground.

    what? i think there were a couple oxxo stores burned down, but nowhere near 100. it was mostly cars being burned down.

    State officials said the assailants hijacked and burned at least two dozen vehicles and put up roadblocks around the state Friday evening.
    By Saturday afternoon, hundreds of military troops and special forces had arrived in Tijuana to help restore order and reinforce security. Some 300 troops, along with 50 members of the national guard, were flown in to support 3,000 national guard troops and the 2,000-strong Tijuana police force

    Just before noon Sunday, the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana announced on Twitter that it had rescinded an order issued Friday night that U.S. government personnel shelter in place.
    One person was reportedly injured in the violence but no one was killed, according to government officials and news reports. It was the third time in a week that cartels unleashed widespread mayhem in cities across Mexico.

    so it actually wasn't fighting over territory, a CNJG boss was arrested in Jalisco so as a response, they coordinated simultaneous attacks across several states to get attention. that's probably why no one died, it was just to make a statement.

    Reports are that innocent civilians were purposely shot at by cartels with 12 dead and hundreds injured. At least of 2 days ago. Body count might be higher now. I'll ask her when I see her at the house

    President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Friday condemned the violence. It is the second time this week that criminal groups traditionally associated with the drug trade have paralyzed Mexican cities by turning their firepower on civilians and businesses.

    “It wasn’t just an attack between two different groups,” Lopez Obrador said at a press conference. “It reached the point where they started shooting at civilians, at innocent people. That’s the saddest part of this situation.”

    I actually was in Azusa with my aunt for a few months, I'm in Queretaro, MX right now. If I cared enough, I would take a photo of a landmark with an identifier with ISH but I don't care that much.
