In a significant incident, unidentified armed individuals launched a targeted assault on a camp belonging to the Pakistan Army in the Malar area of the Awaran district. The attack occurred during the night earlier this week, with reports surfacing of significant financial losses incurred by the Army.
Details emerging from the scene suggest that the assailants, armed with rocket launchers and other heavy weaponry, initiated the attack at approximately 5 p.m. The central camp of the Army became the focal point of the assault.
Details surrounding the attack remain sketchy, with official statements from Army yet to be issued. However, initial reports suggest a fierce exchange of fire between the armed assailants and the Pakistan Army stationed at the camp. The extent of casualties on both sides remains unclear, and the condition of injured personnel is also unknown.
It is noteworthy that the Kohlu region of Pak-occupied-Balochistan and its surrounding areas have been known for the presence of Baloch freedom fighters. However, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack. The longstanding grievances of the Baloch people against the Pakistan Army, primarily concerning resource depletion and human rights violations, have fueled ongoing tensions in the region since the Army forcefully occupied Balochistan in 1948.
