The Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) has claimed responsibility for two distinct attacks against Pakistani security forces and their alleged “facilitators” in Panjgur and Turbat. According to BLA’s spokesperson, Jeeyand Baloch, the attacks resulted in two fatalities and two injuries.
On Thursday, the BLA targeted a suspected “facilitator” of the Pakistani security forces near Turbat’s Gumshaad Hotel, leading to his death. The group identified the deceased as Ghulam Yaseen, a resident of Punjab, whom they claimed was working for the Pakistani forces undercover.
In response to the incident, the BLA issued a warning to residential hotel owners in Turbat and the surrounding areas, cautioning them against providing accommodation to such dubious individuals or else face consequences.
In a separate attack on Saturday in Panjgur, BLA fighters utilized grenade launchers to target security outposts on the forces’ main camp, resulting in the death of one soldier and leaving two others critically wounded.
Additionally, the United Baloch Army (UBA), another “pro-independence” group, has claimed responsibility for detonating a railway track in Balochistan’s district Harnai, specifically in the Kochiali area. The UBA stated that its fighters used powerful explosives to blow up the track around 7 a.m. on Saturday, which the Pakistani forces allegedly used for transportation purposes.
The UBA warned companies and individuals aiding the Pakistani authorities in what they referred to as the relentless exploitation of Balochistan’s natural resources. The group threatened severe consequences if these entities do not desist from their alleged actions.
