This afternoon, federal forces are deploying a major operation in the municipality of Nochistlán de Mejía, Zacatecas in search of the Jalisco Cartel – New Generation hitmen who ambushed members of the Mexican Army in Teocaltiche, Jalisco this Sunday morning.
Three soldiers were killed in the attack and five more were wounded, among them the captain in command of the soldiers.
It is known that the target of this major air and ground deployment is “El Geras”, a CJNG lieutenant, who is considered one of the main generators of violence in southern Zacatecas and the Altos de Jalisco area.
GERARDO GONZÁLEZ RAMÍREZ AKA “EL GERAS” “EL APA”
El Geras has been identified as the leader of the cell that for at least five years has unleashed shootings, and kidnappings and caused the displacement of hundreds of people for fear of losing their lives.
***It has been known for some time that “El Geras” and his hired killers have taken over the municipality of Nochistlan, which they turned into their base of operations, from where the caravans of armored trucks leave for Apulco, Zacatecas and other municipalities in the highlands of Jalisco.***
“It is known that after the attack in Teocaltiche this Sunday morning, the hitmen fled to Nochistlan and took refuge in several homes, that is why there is an important operation, it seems that now they are going after “El Geras”.
In the morning, residents of Teocaltiche, Jalisco, wondered why there was no operation in Nochistlán to arrest the leader of the CJNG and his henchmen, since it is well known that they control the municipal police there.
Due to the heavy presence of soldiers and members of the National Guard in Nochistlán, most businesses have closed and people are taking shelter in their homes, fearing possible confrontations.
