Mexicali Police Chief Maria Elena Andrade confirmed that a red alert has been issued at the Mexicali border due to a possible Iranian terrorist threat.
According to Andrade, the terrorist advisory was received Thursday from Customs and Border Protection in Arizona.
“We received reports that four nationals of Iran possibly carrying explosives were going to attempt to cross the border in the area of San Luis to Mexicali. We were told it was three men and a woman to be on the lookout for, “ said Andrade.
Upon the alert issued, Operation Shield has now been activated in Mexicali.
According to Andrade, all law enforcement in the city is currently on high alert.
The chief said CBP asked Mexicali law enforcement to issue the alert for the next 48 hours, but Andrade said she has extended the alert for 72 hours.
San Luis is another border town south of Yuma, Arizona. We’ll update you if we get anymore on this…
