Pakistan army’s convoy was attacked in Zamuran area of district Kech, on Tuesday, Baloch armed organization took the responsibility.
According to details, a convoy of Pakistani forces consisting of five vehicles while on their way to a military camp at Narom, was ambushed by unidentified armed men at Jalagi in Zamuran.
As per the local reports, the sudden attack caused heavy casualties to the army, while the military officials have not yet revealed the details.
Whereas, an umbrella organization of four Baloch armed groups, Baloch Raji Ajoi Sangar, or BRAS claimed the responsibility for the attack later on Thursday.
Baloch Khan, a spokesman for the organization issued a statement saying, “BRAS fighters targeted a convoy of five Frontier Corps vehicles, on July 7 at Nahing Kaor in the Zamran area of Kech District as they were heading to ‘Narom’ military camp. The attack completely destroyed two army vehicles, killing five soldiers on the spot and injuring several others. In this fierce attack, the fighters besieged the army for a long time – to save their lives, the enemy army had to call in combat helicopters. However, all our Sarmachars (fighters) managed to get out safely after the attack.”
BRAS, adhering to the philosophy of national unity, is moving towards building a strong national army, which combines the Baloch resistance forces to launch the fiercest attacks on the enemy, he added.
The BRAS spokesperson endorsed the recent attack on Pakistan Stock Exchange in Karachi, which was carried out by one of its allies, the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), he termed that attack as a great example of sacrifice and innovation in the history of Baloch resistance, and said that BRAS fully supports the attacks of Majeed Brigade.
While expressing concerns about the recent critical comments over the Karachi Stock Exchange, by some self-exiled Baloch activists, Baloch Khan said that “a group of such controversial individuals reinforced the statement of hostile Pakistan and reiterated the Pakistani accusation against BRAS that it is an Iranian proxy, the same controversial group in Europe that has in the past accused one of BRAS’s allies of being an Indian proxy – It has also accused General Aslam Baloch and all Baloch Fidaheens (self-sacrificing) of being proxies. BRAS describes the allegations as an attempt to reinforce the narrative of enemy (Pakistan) and to confuse the Baloch resistance forces into inter-party arguments instead of fighting the enemy, and BRAS strongly and vehemently denies the allegations. After its denial, if the group repeats these allegations formally or informally in the future without providing fully credible evidence, we will be right to declare the group suspicious.”
