MEXICO CITY — Nearly 1,000 Mexican troops arrived at the Ciudad Juarez airport Friday to deal with a surge in drug war violence that’s sent tremors throughout the country, local media reported.

Mexican authorities said they’re part of the more than 2,000 soldiers and federal policemen involved in “Operation Joint Chihuahua” who are being dispatched to combat narcotrafficking operations that have terrorized much of the state of Chihuahua, particularly Ciudad Juarez, Palomas and the city of Chihuahua, the state capital.
