Quetta, 7 Dec 2020
At least four Pakistani forces officials have been killed and several others wounded in a remote-controlled-blast in Balochistan’s district Kohlu region on Friday.
Balochistan media outlets reported that the convoy was on its way from Kohlu to Kahan when it came under attack at Sibbi junction.
Meanwhile, the spokesman of the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), Azad Baloch, informed media from an undisclosed location that BLA fighters targeted the Pakistani forces convoy and it [BLA] accepts responsibility for the attack.
He added that on December 4, “a convoy of Pakistan FC (Frontier Corps) was on its way from Kohlu to Kahan, which was ambushed by our fighters in a remote-controlled explosion.”
The blast damaged one vehicle of the convoy killing five Pakistani FC personnel and wounding others, Azad Baloch said in his statement.
BLA in its media statement further maintained that Pakistani forces as a form of collective punishment blocked the Kohlu-Kahan road for the civilian population which, the statement claimed, is a violation of international principles of war.
Azad Baloch, however, reiterated that further similar attack would continue against ‘occupying Pakistan forces’ until they withdraw from Baloch land and Balochistan regain its independence.
