The Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) has claimed responsibility for two separate attacks in Balochistan’s Panjgur and Turbat that killed five people combined.
The BLF claimed responsibility for the attack in a media statement, claiming that its fighters had targeted a convoy of “Pakistani agents.” The group claimed that 4 individuals had been killed in the attack, including “death squad” leader Faqeerok.
The BLF fighters had carried out an intelligence-based operation in Parome where they had ambushed the convoy of “death squad” leader Faqeerok, who was killed along with two others. BLF claimed its fighters confiscated weapons and ammunition from the attack site, including an LMG, an RPG, and two AK-47s.
BLF also claimed responsibility for a separate attack that killed an alleged Pakistani agent in Turbat. The group claimed in a media statement that the deceased, Peer Jan s/o Mian Dad, headed a “death squad” and worked for the Pakistani forces.
The BLF said that Peer Jan, also known as ‘Peero’, and his “death squad” were active in Buleda, Aapsar, Hoshap, and Guarkop areas where they actively assisted the Pakistani security forces in operations. They also abducted innocent Baloch people and handed them over to the Pakistani forces. Peero ran a torture house at his home where he tortured and killed dozens of detainees.
