They are being hunted like flies, and all of them are informants because they are giving away locations and contacts, that's the way that “The Damaso” operate, they go after them and if they find them, it is likely that they will engage in armed combat”, warned a trusted source to ZETA, about the war in Sinaloa that has expanded to La Paz and Los cabos.
After the arrest of “El Chapo”, a climate of instability has rule across the region of Sinaloa. “I knew that the struggle for the plaza and for the control of drug routes was imminent, and whoever controls the plaza will have a lot of power. Today the struggle is not only in Sinaloa, but has expanded to Baja California Sur”, according to a member of the Security Coordination Group.
Damaso Lopez is trying to control the Plaza of the Cartel de Sinaloa: “The fight of Damaso Lopez is unstable against the Cartel De Sinaloa, we saw it coming from the beginning, here in the State of Sinaloa, and not to far away, for example, in La Paz, since the fall of 'Montoya', principal operator of 'Los Mayitos'; a 'Mayo Zambada cell leader'. What did the “Mayos” did? they turned to Jalisco because the cell of 'Los Damaso' were killing the people of “Mayo”, since then, we realize that they had their own game going on”, informed a source of Military Intelligence to ZETA.
Then the attacks came back to Culiacan, Sinaloa: The war was more clear when dozens of pick up trucks with armed people headed into hot territory, according to Military sources, “people of 'Los Chapos' (Sons of Chapo') attacked other civilians inside territory controlled by Damaso, and therefore it was really clear for us that the war had been declared. However, the biggest concern is that the war that we are seeing in Sinaloa, will soon be reflected in Baja California Sur”, warned the Intelligence Officer.
The interruption of 'Los Chapitos' into territory controlled by 'Los Damaso”, is due to the possibility that Damaso Lopez ordered an attack against the sons of “El Chapo”, last Saturday 4th of February, and to the information given in a letter to news corporations, that Chapitos and Mayo are wounded after an ambush. According to military forces, “El Mayo” Zambada was with them during the ambush, and this led to a fight for the control of the Cartel de Sinaloa and the territories that one day belonged to “Chapo”.
