The army, metro police, traffic officers and the police’s tactical response unit have been sent into Lavender Hills on the Cape Flats today, after several gang-related murders and daily shootings.

It is believed that seven people have died in the area since September which has become known as the most dangerous place on the Cape Flats.

Western Cape police spokesperson Andre Traut says the swoop on the area is one of many planned for the festive season. Atleast sixty-four people have been killed in gang related violence in Cape Town since June this year.
