Last night in a tragic incident, Baloch refugee Najma Baloch lost her life due to a series of airstrikes conducted by Pakistan’s fighter jets and drones in Iranian-administered Balochistan. The recent tensions between Iran and Pakistan have escalated the exchange of airstrikes resulting in the casualties of innocent civilians.

Reportedly, in Haqabad, situated in Iran’s Sistan and Balochistan province, indicate that a minimum of ten individuals lost their lives as a result of airstrikes conducted by Pakistan. The casualties comprised of three women, two men, and numerous children. The initial attack occurred at approximately 4 a.m., followed by a second strike at 6 a.m., targeting those assisting the victims of the first assault.

Among the identified deceased are Najma Baloch and the children Hani, Babar, and Chiragh Baloch. They were refugees from the Panjgur district in western Balochistan, fleeing the ongoing military operations in their hometown conducted by the Pakistani forces.

Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry acknowledged these airstrikes, describing them as a “series of highly coordinated and specifically targeted precision military strikes” carried out in Iran’s southeastern Sistan and Balochistan province. The operation, named “Marg Bar Sarmachar” (Death to Guerrilla Fighters), reportedly led to the allegedly deaths of several freedom fighters, as per Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry.

In response to the airstrikes, Tehran called for an immediate explanation from Pakistan. Alireza Marhamati, the deputy governor of Sistan and Baluchistan, confirmed that at least seven people were killed in the strikes. He verified that the deceased included three women and four children, all of whom were foreign nationals.

These airstrikes followed Iran’s missile and drone attacks in eastern Pak-ocuupied-Balochistan, resulting in the deaths of two Baloch children and causing multiple injuries. The ongoing regional conflict is only affecting the Baloch population on both sides of the border.

The heart-wrenching reality of the Haqabad airstrikes, coupled with the relentless Baloch genocide, paints a vivid picture of the painful life endured by the Baloch community. This is not just a crisis; it is a passionate plea for urgent international intervention.
