The infamous Mexican drug lord El Chapo has allegedly declared war against the so-called Islamic State for meddling in his business.
El Chapo escaped from prison in July, and has been on the run ever since.
According to cartelblog, the leader of the Sinaloa cartel has sent an encrypted email to the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi.
The email is reported to read:
You [ISIS] are not soldiers. You are nothing but lowly p*ssies. Your god cannot save you from the true terror that my men will levy at you if you continue to impact my operation.
My men will destroy you. The world is not yours to dictate. I pity the next son of a wh*re that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel. I will have their heart and tongue torn from them.”
The root of the ominous warning stems from ISIS’ stance on drugs, with the group destroying shipments they discover within the Middle East.
That action has apparently not gone down too well with El Chapo, who has been expanding his cartel’s global operation.
If the threat is true then the terrorist group would be wise not to take it lightly as the Sinaloa cartel is not short of resources. According to The Mirror El Chapo paid $50 million (£32 million) in bribes to ensure his escape from prison.
Not quite the ally coalition forces probably had in mind, but hey, the more the merrier when it comes to defeating the crazed cult that is ISIS.
