Balochistan: Military operation in Manguchar, Ispilingi, Johan and surrounding areas, two killed
Pakistan military have started an offensive operation in Esplingi, Johan, Manguchar and other adjoining areas of Balochistan on Saturday morning. At least two people have reportedly been killed and seven have been abducted.
Local sources reported that the military used gunship helicopters and ground forces to attack the unarmed civilians.
After the wanton attack on Baloch nomads, the Baloch freedom fighters from nearly by mountains have reportedly come down to defend the defenceless Baloch civilians.
There have been reports of fierce fighting between Baloch freedom fighters and the Pakistani security forces in different places. The Pakistan military have reportedly burned down many houses belonging to nomads and set on fire their standing crops.
According to latest reports at least two Baloch men have been killed and seven have been abducted by Pakistan military so far. The military is still present in the area and the fighting continued until the filing of this report.
It is pertinent to mention that Pakistan military have intensified its brutal operations across Balochistan after the failed elections. Saturday’s operation was conducted at a time when the newly selected members of the Balochistan Assembly have taken oath.
Meanwhile the Baloch pro-independence political parties have termed Saturday’s military operation a message for the newly government of Balochistan that they will have no power to stop killing and abduction of Baloch people by Pakistan military intelligence and the ISI.
