Pakistan Air Force jihadi aircraft, as part of a fresh military operation involving ground forces, Friday bombed a number of villages in the Marri tribal area of Kohlu on the first anniversary of the icon of Baloch liberation movement Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri .

The Daily Sangar newspaper reported Pakistan army with assistance of fighter jets bombed a number of villages in Kohlu namely Nissau, Jabbar, Siahkoh Indra and Chappar where a quite a few civilians were feared killed.

There was no official confirmation of the air attacks. Pakistan military generally keeps a tight lid on Balochstan developments.

“According to reports Pakistani forces ransacked the homes of farmers and local landlords and have abducted a number of men,” according to Daily Sangar. “Latest reports indicate the siege of the villages continue and the army operation continues.  The adjoining areas are in the grip of fear and panic because of the ongoing operation.

In related developments, four helicopter gunships landed in Panjgur and troops reinforcements have also arrived in the fertile date growing district, which is home to a number of leading intellectuals.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and the Abdul Malik government, which is called “puppet” by the locals as most of the men in uniform are non-Baloch outsiders, had in recent weeks announced airforce will be used against the Baloch freedom fighters or sarmachars.

Baloch Liberation Front chief Dr Allah Nazar, who is a gold medalist gynecologist, condemned the abduction of Baloch juvenile in Mastung. In a tweet, he said, “Abduction of a class 6 student Zahoor Ahmad by ISI from Mastung is a heinous crime. UN must interfere on Pakistani war crimes in Balochistan.”

According London-based Baloch Warna, Pakistan’s civilian government and military leadership at high level meetings decided to intensify the on-going military operations in Balochistan and send PAF (Pakistan Air Force) fighter jets to support the ground forces in their offensives against Baloch people.

Balochistan national media sources reported that Pakistani gunship helicopters bombed civilian populated areas in Mastung, Johan and surrounding areas last week, killing at least five people and injuring several others.

Meanwhile, Baloch Liberation Front chief Dr Allah Nazar, who is a gold medalist gynecologist, condemned the abduction of Baloch juvenile in Mastung.  In a tweet, he said, “Abduction of a class 6 student Zahoor Ahmad by ISI from Mastung is a heinous crime. UN must interfere on Pakistani war crimes in Balochistan.”

Pakistani security forces are trained since Baloch are “agents of India and Israel,” they should be treated with the same brutality the apostate Uraynah tribe, who had rebelled Prophet Muhammad, were treated 14 centuries ago. It is most certain the soldiers of Frontier Corps are brainwashed they are at war against Baloch apostates.
