The self-sacrificing brigade (Majeed Brigade) of the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) carried out a massive attack against Chinese installations at port city Gwadar on Friday, killing “at least nine Chinese”.
“BLA carried out a self-sacrificing operation against a convoy of Chinese engineers in Gwadar, Balochistan. At least 9 Chinese engineers were killed and several were injured in the attack,” said the BLA (Baloch Liberation Army) in its media statement.
The self-sacrificing attack on Chinese installations at Gwadar was carried out by BLA Majeed Brigade’s member Sirbuland Baloch alias Umar Jan.
Majeed Brigade of BLA comprises of Baloch revolutionaries who have taken a pledge to sacrifice their lives for the cause of Balochistan’s independence. Last year on June 29 four Baloch revolutionaries of the BLA’s Majeed Brigade had attacked the Pakistan Stock Exchange at Karachi. Even as the four Baloch revolutionaries embraced martyrdom they succeeded in their objective to highlight the plight of Balochistan across the world.
Balochistan attained its independence from British colonial rule on August 11, 1947. However, Balochistan’s independence was short lived and Pakistan captured it on March 27, 1948. Since then Pakistan has been looting Balochistan’s resources and the Baloch had been fighting for their independence.
At the turn of this century, imperialist China joined the bandwagon with Pakistan to loot Balochistan through the CPEC (China-Pakistan Economic Corridor). Gwadar is an important nodal centre of CPEC through which China transports all the mineral wealth looted from Balochistan to other parts of the world, while the Pakistani regime conducts all kinds of atrocities on Balochistan.
Friday’s attack on Chinese convoy at Gwadar by the BLA’s Majeed Brigade is part of the Baloch revolutionary movement for Balochistan’s independence.
