BLA kills four Paki troops


Landmine blast kills four soldiers

By Malik Siraj Akbar

QUETTA: Four security personnel were killed and two others injured in a remote control bomb blast in the Marri tribal area while supply of gas to several parts of Mustung district was disrupted after a gas pipeline was blown up by unidentified attackers on Monday night. In a separate incident, security forces shelled remote parts of central Balochistan during a search operation for suspected insurgents.

Dani Baksh Magasi, a journalist, said the blast occurred when a security convoy was moving from Sibi district to Kohlu. Two of the dead have been identified as Asghar and Ali.

The Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) has claimed responsibility for the blast, saying the incident was meant to avenge the killings of innocent Baloch by the security forces. Mirak Baloch, a BLA spokesman said, “The blast occurred in the Thatrani area and killed 14 personnel. The BLA also carried out another assault on a truck in a Marri tribal area which killed more people and injured many more,” he said.

“Monday’s aerial bombardment clearly indicates the government’s anti-Baloch designs,” Kachkol Ali Baloch, Balochistan’s opposition leader, told Daily Times. Balochistan government spokesman Raziq Bugti said reports of bombardment in Mustung were “baseless rumours”. malik siraj akbar

    The Federal government had maintained that all of Balochistan is with Mushraff except three sardars, one of them they’ve killed and the other two have been termed to be “cornered” It was alleged that the BLA was also spearheaded by the three sardars. Wonder why no one asks the government as to why almost daily we hear news of attacks and violence in Balochistan when according to them “ the writ of the state has been established?”
