The violent escalation in Tamaulipas, in Mexico's Northeast, continues to affect the operational environment as physical threats continue to increase due to vicious turf wars between Los Metros, Los Ciclones, Los Escorpiones, and other splinters of the Gulf Cartel. A cartel realignment trend has been observed, as the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG) and the Sinaloa Cartel attempt to directly —or through proxy cartels— control the most important smuggling routes (plazas).
