Unidentified armed individuals carried out an attack on a residential quarter near the Fish Harbour Jetty in Gwadar district, killing 7 individuals and injuring one person.

The deceased and injured were transferred to Gwadar Hospital.

According to the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Gwadar, the attack on the residential area near the Gwadar Fish Harbour Jetty occurred at 3 a.m. on Thursday. The incident took place 25 k.m. away from Gwadar city.

The deceased have been identified as Sajjid, Asad, Adnan, Hasseb, Mukarab, Ansar and Arslan.

The official said that the dead and injured individuals used to work in a barbershop in the area and belonged to district Khanewal in Pakistan’s Punjab.

So far, no group has claimed responsibility for this attack in Gwadar. However, these attacks are an attempt to take back control of the region that has been plagued by the Army’s brutal occupation and daily atrocities. Since 1947, Pak Army has not only forcefully occupied Balochistan but also has benefited from its rich resources. But Pak Army has left the province at the rock bottom of the socio-economic ladder, leaving the Baloch community oppressed and alienated.
