In a recent act of valour, the Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) attacked a Pakistan Army post in the Gomazi area of Tump in Pak-occupied-Balochistan. The attack, which occurred on 15 Oct night at 8 p.m., was carried out by Baloch Sarmachars (Freedom fighters), who used a rocket launcher to target the Army’s installation.
During the assault, the rocket struck the Army post, and it is likely that the enemy suffered a significant loss both in terms of financial and human, as a result of the attack. The BLF’s fighters strategically launched the attack with precision to minimize potential harm to civilians and their property due to the post’s proximity to the local population.
The attack was targeted because the brutal Pakistan Army had established the checkpoint by forcefully occupying the residence of Shaheed Sarmchar Jabbar, also known as Captain Janahgeer, a member of the Balochistan Liberation Front. This checkpoint has been identified as a priority target for the BLF in the region. Because of this oppressive behaviour, Pak Army should anticipate such attacks in future as well.
As part of their tyranny collective punishment policy, the Pakistan Army has consistently targeted the families of Baloch activists and other freedom fighters. This policy involves burning their homes, confiscating their properties, and converting them into Army camps and outposts. The primary objective of the BLF’s struggle is to put an end to the occupation of Balochistan by the Pakistan Army, a crucial step for the preservation of Baloch national identity.
For decades, BLF has carried on an armed struggle against the Pakistan Army and ‘establishment’, as they have illegally occupied Balochistan. Since 27 March 1948, Pakistan Army has been oppressing Baloch through daily home raids, disappearances, staged encounters, target killings, torture, humiliation at checkpoints, and kidnappings for ransom. The Pakistan Army is targeting and monitoring Baloch people, and anyone who has a potential to raise questions is either killed or abducted. Therefore, BLF continues to assert its commitment to the cause of an independent and sovereign Balochistan.
