Thirty-two bodies were discovered Thursday inside three houses in Veracruz, Mexico, the Mexican navy said in a news release.

The discovery of the bodies came during a military operation, dubbed Safe Veracruz, that was targeting organized crime in the region, the statement said.

The state of Veracruz, once popular with tourists for its beaches and sea activities, has been rocked in recent months by a series of brutal killings as violent drug cartels fight one another for control of the area while simultaneously battling Mexican authorities.

The military operation in the state’s capital city of Veracruz came just days after Mexican President Felipe Calderon ordered troops to the region.
