Watch: Fierce Gun Battle Erupts Between Mexican Troops And Cartel Gunmen Near Texas Border

Laredo Morning Times, a daily newspaper based in Texas, said a series of gun battles erupted earlier this week in west Nuevo Laredo, a city that resides across from Laredo, Texas, and ended near a Wal-Mart shopping center in the Sister City by Avenida Reforma and Bulevar Emiliano Zapata.

According to Breitbart News, the violence began Tuesday morning when Mexican military forces conducted a series of raids aimed at capturing the leadership of the Los Zetas faction called Cartel Del Noreste. Cartel gunmen immediately responded, setting off numerous gun battles across the region in the neighborhoods called Nueva Era, Voluntad y Trabajo, and La Fe, which some of these areas are less than one mile away from Texas.

The shootouts caused the entire city to shut down. At the same time, citizen journalists picked up their smartphones armed with a camera of truth and shared their experince on social media of the out-of-control violence.

Mexican authorities have not issued an official statement as to what happened, however, what you are about to see might be shocking.

The shootouts came two days after a group of cartel assassins fatally shot Edgar Humberto Vega Avalos, Nuevo Laredo’s prison director. Avalos was traveling in his American-made truck on Cerro del Cubilete Street in Colonia Enrique González when assassins opened fire on the vehicle he was in Saturday night, according to the Tamaulipas attorney general’s office.

Here is the alleged crime scene where Avalos was executed.

On Tuesday, heavy automatic gunfire was heard at the AutoZone/Walmart shopping complex located roughly 1.30 miles away from Texas.

A citizen journalist risked his life to capture this incredible footage.

The next video shows civilians taking cover outside of a food stand while automatic gunfire was heard a few blocks over.

As authorities had difficulties containing the shootout, motorists were trapped in the crossfire.

Some of the alleged assassins traveling in Ford trucks.

Security cameras inside a Walmart located about 1.30 miles from the Texas border, show the moment when Mexican special forces confronted Mexican cartel members.

More citizens caught in heavy automatic crossfire.

The U.S. Department of State considers Tamaulipas a “Level 4: Do Not Travel” state due to crime. Authorities said that violent offenses — murder, armed robbery, carjacking, kidnapping, extortion and sexual assault — is common.

Gang activity and gun battles are widespread, according to Mexico’s travel warning.

“Armed criminal groups target public and private passenger buses traveling through Tamaulipas, often taking passengers hostage and demanding ransom payments. Local law enforcement has limited capability to respond to violence in many parts of the state,” the warning states.

As for the Mexican President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador, well, he intends to create a new border-police force to contain the out of control cartel violence in the country, his incoming chief of public security Alfonso Durazo, told Bloomberg in an interview Monday.

The outgoing Mexican President, Enrique Peña Nieto, will transfer power to Obrador on December 1st. Peña Nieto leaves behind a country suffering from record high murders — some of the worst in the world.

Bloomberg notes that Obrador will meet with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday, as both will likely discuss the events that unfolded in Nuevo Laredo.

In another interview with The Associated Press, Durazo was optimistic about the reforms, which he called a “Mexican recipe for peace.” Still, Mexico’s record violence and homicides produced by drug cartels will not be resolved in the near term. The peak of violence has yet to come as the Mexico–United States border braces for more violence.

Build that wall, Mr. President!

Drug$ 'R US

Don't tell the USSAN lumpen proles poisoning themselves with every kind of
filth they can shove up any orifice into their drug-addled gnat brains but just
like Al CIAduh and ISIS, the Zetas terrorizing Mexico are simply another USSAN
asset in the Washing town criminal enterprise known as the US government. Look
at heroin production in Afghanistan since the Langley Crime Syndicate took
over. Hint, count the opioid deaths in a shithole near you on any day of the
week. Hint... the Paki ISI slash Al CIAduh Gulen ratlines destroying peasant
USSA and NOBODY gives a shit obviously as long as the poison of the deep state
gets to market and keeps the hogs on animal farm sedated. The regime is
destroying USSANS and making a fortune keeping the rednecks and ethnics in
poverty same as they did back in the day to black USSA with crack cocaine. They
killed Gary Webb when he proved it.

Ever wonder why all that crap gets over the border and to market so easily
like a well greased supply line for Walmart? Ever wonder why there has NEVER
been a USSAN cartel drug boss? Because the criminal institutions of the CIA,
FBI, DEA and Border Patrol are the USSAN cartels. Capiche!

Face it USSA, your plantation owners herd you at will and cull you like cattle, tax cattle.

Mexican Cartel, Los ZETAS trained by USSA…

Mike Ruppert "CIA are drug runners"

Ron Paul "Bush is a drug runner".

The Sackler Gang, a Jewish crime family that makes Al Capone look like a Prohibition era social worker.…

Guns require a permit and minimal training in Mexico.

Article 10 of the Mexican Constitution, as amended, states:

"The inhabitants of the United Mexican States have the right to possess arms in their homes for their security and legitimate defense with the exception of ...... most guns.

Those zetas are some sick motherfuckers. They're the ones who mutilate the corpses n' shit.

They dumped a dump truck full of decapitated heads in the town square in Boca del Rio, and they've found mass graves up and down the gulf coast.

Just sayin....
