Baloch Raji Ajoi Sangar (BRAS), a coalition of Baloch armed groups, Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF), Baloch Republican Army (BRA) and Baloch Republican Guard (BRG) has issued a statement in the media from an undisclosed location. The spokesperson Baloch Khan said “BRAS fighters encountered with activists of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, a religious extremist group and local so-called Death Squad, led by the Pakistani army. The clash continued for hours as several enemy personnel were killed while five of our comrades were martyred.
The spokesman added that BRAS fighters were on a routine patrol in Naag area of Buleda in Kech district, when religious extremist group Lashkar-e-Taiba and death squad group in a large number tried to surround our fighters. In hours-long battle, Lashkar-e-Taiba and the so-called Death Squad were directly supported by the Pakistani army. BRAS sarmachars succeeded in breaking the siege, killing many enemy personnel after a fierce battle. During the evacuation of all other companions, five BRAS members embraced martyrdom. The martyred include Najid Baloch alias Saleem, Miran Baloch alias Dad Jan, Shakeel Baloch alias Jeeyand, Daulat Baloch alias Baran, Yousuf Baloch alias Doda.
Baloch Khan said that the fighters who were martyred, belonged to various organizations of BRAS. Yousuf Kurd s/o Ilai-Bakhsh alias Doda belonged to Naal area of district Khuzdar. He started armed struggle for the independence of Balochistan on the platform of Balochistan Liberation Front in 2012, then two years later in 2014, he devoted his services to the Baloch Liberation Army. During the eight years he served on various fronts of Balochistan and was involved in many important organizational goals. He was a prominent member of the organization because of his professional military skills and intellectual maturity.
The other companion who held the status of martyrdom was Daulat Rasool s/o Abdul Rasool alias Baba Baran Jan, who belonged to Omri-Kahen Sami area of Turbat. In 2015, he joined armed struggle to achieve national independence through the Balochistan Liberation Front’s platform. He had been the commander of the urban network in Turbat for two years and since 2017 had been serving in the mountains on Shappuk, Sami, Hoshab and other fronts. He was not only a great fighter on mountainous front but also specialized in Urban Guerilla Warfare.
The third martyr is Miran Baloch s/o Sardar Ghani alias Dad Jan, from Zamran Zangi area of Kech district. He started the armed struggle on BLA’s platform in 2016, and later in 2018 he joined the BLF. He was a perfect guerrilla soldier based on his strong ideology of national independence.
Martyred Shakeel Baloch s/o Abdul Ghani alias Mama Junaid belonged to Gwadar district of Balochistan. He joined the Baloch Liberation Army in December 2017 and started armed struggle. He stood alongside his colleagues in many important battles and set the example of bravery.
Martyred Najid Baloch son of Dilmurad alias Saleem belonged to Jhao Kohro in Awaran. He was a young fellow and joined the Baloch Liberation Army in 2019. His strong ideology is an example for youngsters.
BRAS spokesman, Baloch Khan further said that the Pakistani army has formed a so-called death squad in Balochistan as well as all the criminals against the mobilization of the Baloch national independence. These criminal gangs obtain weapons and permits directly from the military, and as a compensation they have the freedom to commit any kind of crimes. According to a new plan of Pakistan Army and intelligence agencies, Lashkar-e-Taiba camps have been set up in mentioned areas of Balochistan. Funding and training are regularly given by the Pakistani Army. Religious extremists of such kind are not only a global threat but have also carried out numerous attacks on the Shi’ite community and Zikiris in Balochistan. Baloch fighters are the biggest obstacles to these global terrorist groups in Balochistan. Due to which, these religious extremists along with Pakistan Army and Death squads are active against Baloch fighters.
The spokesman added that BRAS reaffirms the commitment that the blood of Baloch sons will be revenged with the independence of Balochistan. Our war will continue not only with the occupying forces for an independent state but also with all the terrorist elements who want to make Balochistan a base for terrorism for their vile intentions.
