A Pakistan Army soldier was killed and four others were injured in an attack on security forces in the Sami area of Kech district, Pak-occupied-Balochistan.

The incident occurred when armed men ambushed vehicles carrying Pak Army security personnel along the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) route. The deceased soldier has been identified as Sipahi Abdul Sattar.

The Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), a pro-independence group, has claimed responsibility for the Kech attack. In a statement, BLA spokesman Jeeyand Baloch said that their fighters targeted Pak forces’ vehicles using heavy weapons around 4 p.m. local time.

While the BLA claims to have killed four security personnel and injured three, official sources have only confirmed one fatality and four injuries. The Army’s casualty figures is not a reliable source as they tend to downplay the magnitude the setback of the attack.

Since 1948, the Pakistan Army has forcefully occupied the POB, to exploit it indefinitely, has employed violent tactics such as enforced disappearances, extra-judicial killings, raids etc on the Baloch community. Therefore, BLA conducts resistance against Pakistan Army
