This commune became one of the most dangerous in the country, since the armed groups that existed in the sector were very strong and totally controlled this territory, groups such as: FARC, ELN, PARAMILITARES, CAP. Groups that terrorize and caused this commune to have great combats and much suffering.

Operation Orion Comuna 13.

Before talking about OPERATION ORION, we must remember a little of the history of the Comuna 13 sector of Medellin. Violence in the city of Medellín grew in the 1980s, with guerrillas, paramilitaries and cartels terrorizing the city through violent acts.

The greatest legacy of drug trafficking was the violence it left in many of Medellín’s neighborhoods, where many young people wanted easy money and to feel they could conquer the world through violence.

The absence of the Colombian state in sectors such as COMUNA 13 led to the creation and strengthening of groups such as criminal combos, different types of criminal gangs, urban militias and paramilitaries. Groups that were increasingly gaining strength in the urban sector.

Inhabitants of COMUNA 13 narrate how the guerrillas arrived in the territory, they say that these groups entered from the hills of San Cristóbal, this happened starting in the 90s.

Groups such as FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia) and ELN (Army De Liberación Nacional) were those that entered and made their presence felt in this territory.

Subsequently, a guerrilla group was created in the same commune called CAP (Comandos Armados Del Pueblo). Things were not going well, but when another group arrived, the paramilitaries, life in the territory became much worse. All this brought death, kidnapping, extortion, fear and massive displacement.

After the year 2000 everything started to get worse for the community, violence was much more common, and Express Kidnappings began to be seen. This type of kidnapping was one of the major strategies of the guerrillas to raise money for the war.

Because of all that was happening, there were 24 military operations in the sector between 1998 and 2002, including Mariscar and Antorcha.

The objective of these operations was to have a state presence in the territory and to try to combat (eliminate) the guerrilla groups that were in the sector.
