The Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF), operating in Pakistan’s southwestern province, has claimed responsibility for two recent attacks on Pak security forces in the Kalat district. Major Gwahram Baloch, the BLF spokesperson, released a statement detailing the incidents.

According to the BLF, the first attack occurred on June 28 at approximately 11 p.m. BLF fighters reportedly launched an assault on a Frontier Corps (FC) camp in the Johan area of Kalat, using rockets and other advanced weaponry. The rockets landed inside the camp, resulting in significant casualties and material damage to Pak forces.

In response to the attack, Pak forces allegedly fired multiple mortar shells and deployed surveillance drones in the area. The BLF statement mentions that helicopters were also used to shell the attack site at around 6 a.m. the following morning. Despite these counter-measures, the BLF claims its fighters successfully retreated to secure locations without casualties.

A second attack was reported on June 30, targeting an FC checkpoint in the Johan Shah Mardan area of Kalat. The BLF statement indicates that fighters used a combination of sniper rifles, rocket launchers, and other weapons in this assault. Again, the group have inflicted heavy losses on the security forces.

Major Gwahram Baloch said that these attacks are part of the BLF’s ongoing campaign against occupying Army in POB. The spokesperson asserted that such operations will continue until their goal of an independent Balochistan is achieved.
