BREITBART — CIUDAD VICTORIA, Tamaulipas — The ongoing civil war between two rival factions of the Los Zetas cartel has led to the criminal organization’s targeting the relatives of opposition cartel members. The escalating violence has only helped to further spread terror among average citizens.
During one of the recent attacks by the Los Zetas faction known as Cartel Del Noreste, a toddler and a young girl were hit by gunfire. The toddler died in the gun battle. The faction known as Vieja Escuela Z/ Grupo Bravo, carried out two beheadings over the weekend in an apparent act of retaliation. They left the victim’s bodies in a public place.
Vieja Escuela Z identified the victims as being the father and brother in law of a CDN commander known as Tiki Tiki through a message on social media. The message, signed by someone calling themselves Comandante Bravo, read “I respected families but you broke that rule”.
