It will take two weeks to militarize the city

In two weeks or less, the arrival of 2,100 new elements of the Mexican Army at this border is expected to begin, according to personnel from the Office of the Spokesperson of the Fifth Military Zone.

On Thursday, in a press conference in the afternoon, the commander of the Zone that includes Juárez and other cities of Chihuahua, Saúl Luna Jaimes, announced that many elements will arrive in the city to support the United strategy for Juárez , before an evaluation by the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) due to the increase in the number of intentional killings that have occurred in the past months.

This deployment also responds to the increase in the number of troops across the country that will be dedicated to public security work, the Spokesperson’s Office announced.

The announcement was made without a specific date as military personnel have scheduled activities such as training rounds, ceremonies and vacations that have been rescheduled to prioritize security coverage in public, it explained.

According to Luna Jaimes, the elements are from the Fourth and Sixth Military Regions, with headquarters in Monterrey, Nuevo León and Puebla, Puebla.

The commander of the Zone also pointed out that they will intervene to achieve the goals of the United for Juárez strategy, which consists of reducing the rate of drug trafficking, human trafficking, intentional homicide and addiction, along with other levels and government agency.

However, it is necessary that other authorities ‘let themselves be helped’ and that they offer information to the Army to analyze and attack events, considered the military chief.

Luna Jaimes announced on Friday during his visit to Juárez that it is a growing power of organized crime in this border and the protection networks of the authorities of the three levels of government that led Sedena to make the decision to militarize Juárez.

Without direct accusations against any agency in any command, the military command charged that “we will not allow criminals to be empowered,” so it must be the same agencies that public servants observe under their charge it is possible to associate with those who make the report and investigate the violence.

“That is important, that we speak with transparency, with the truth, and see that there are protection networks that help organized crime,” he said.
