This section briefly reviews the low-intensity (less than 1000 conflict-related fatalities) subnational armed conflicts in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras in 2021, all of which are related to gang violence (see section I). Two of the most infamous street gangs in the Americas—rivals Mara Salvatrucha (MS13) and the 18th Street Gang (Barrio 18)—have an especially strong influence in all three countries.
