Pakistan Army Conducts Ruthless Bombardment of Kalat Region
Desperate to secure Chinese investment in the region, Pakistani forces have accelerated their offensive in Balochistan.  Pakistan FC began a massive troop deployment this morning in the Kalat area in hopes of orchestrating an “endgame scenario”.  Residents in occupied areas of Balochistan witnessed dozens of Cobra Gunship Helicopters, hundreds of military vehicles, and Fighter Jets converging on the Nemargh, Shoor, Parudh, Nushki, & Suraab and other rural districts throughout the Kalat region. BLA Sarmachar arrived soon after the assault began, to rally against occupying State Forces and rescue the besieged villagers. Baloch Sarmachar shot down a Pakistani AH-1 Cobra Gunship Helicopter and killed many FC Soldiers. Although an FC spokesman claimed only 10 soldiers were injured, local residents reported 5 trucks conveying dead FC Soldiers from the combat zone. 

Occupational State Forces have also commenced indiscriminate shelling of the rural villages in the Kalat region today. At least 30 residents have been martyred and all livestock slaughtered. One woman was martyred and two other women were severely injured during attacks in the mountainous Paarod Shor district. Pakistani Forces completely destroyed countless homes, including the houses of Meer Hazaar Khan Saasoli, Noor Ahmed Saasoli, Sher Mohmmad Saasoli, & Peer Mohmmad Saasoli.

Over the past several months Pakistani Forces have enacted a co-ordinated multi-pronged military stratagem in Balochistan designed to force the Indigenous Baloch population into the North-Western regions of Balochistan. In the North-East Pakistan FC have continually invaded, bombarded, and since occupied the Dera Bugti regions. Meanwhile Pakistan’s Armed Forces conducted similar operations in the the South-Western areas of Balochistan. The rural Baloch towns; Turbat, Nasirabad, Panjgur, Mashkai and Awaran have all faced heavy bombardment and occupation by large numbers of State Soldiers.

Even now bombardment of Mashkai villages continues unabated.  Residents are being detained, interrogated and subjected to acts of torture by Occupational State Forces.  At least 8 homes have been reduced to ashes so far during today’s loot & burn operations in the Mashkai region.

The homes and businesses of Indigenous Baloch citizens are invaded, looted and burned. Baloch schools are attacked and occupied. State Forces then proceed to establish camps and bases in the occupied regions from which they stage attacks on the surrounding districts. Subsequently Baloch civilians are victimized and displaced by Occupational State Forces. Residents are forced to abandon their homes and relocate to areas near Kalat, Quetta and other regions along the Northern Afghanistan border. Anyone attempting to flee West is shot at by Iranian Border Patrols.
