London: Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman, one of the world's most wanted drug lords, has reportedly declared war on the Islamic State group after the jihadists destroyed his shipments.
In an email to ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, Guzman has reportedly threatened to destroy the terror group if it continues to 'impact' on his cartel's operation.
The email leaked by cartelblog.com, metro.co.uk reported.
The Mexican drug baron, who runs the notorious Sinaloa cartel, allegedly told Al Baghdadi that his organisation are 'not soldiers' but 'lowly p*****s'.
"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*** that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel,” the report quoted him as saying. "I will have their heart and tongue torn from them.”
El Chapo, nicknamed "Shorty", has been on the run from police since he escaped from the maximum security Altiplano prison - 55 miles west of Mexico City - in July.
Guzman is said to have paid $50 million (£32 million) in bribes this time to ensure he got away safely. He had previously escaped from prison in 2001, and was only recaptured last year.
