On Thursday 29 February 2024, engagements took place between Mexican Army (SEDENA) personnel and Jalisco New Generation Cartel (Cártel Jalisco Nueva Generación − CJNG) gunmen in the Aguililla, Michoacán region. These engagements included firefights and weaponized drone attacks on SEDENA forces and the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in an anti-personnel land mine role. During the sweep of a CJNG camp, a land mine was detonated which killed four soldiers and seriously wounded nine more. The use of land mines by CJNG has been an ongoing activity for some years now, however, these munitions are starting to proliferate to other cartels with another incident taking place just last month in Zipoco, Jalisco.[1]
