Occupied Balochistan: The paramilitary forces of Pakistan, Frontier Corps, initiated a major offensive in the areas of Marwar, Marget ,Zarghoon and Mach in Balochistan. Heavy artillery ,Gunship Helicopters and Fighter jets were used on civilian population, injuring several civilians including children and women and causing the death of nearly 300 cattle. These areas have been victimized by Pakistan’s offensive policies towards Baloch and Balochistan for the several months for several times.
Due to successive operations in the area, which appear to be mainly targeted towards the civilian population, several hundred people have migrated out of the area, where they have been living for centuries. And many more are besieged in the area due to the road blocks by the paramilitary forces, increasing the probability of a rising death toll due to the heavy bombardment in the area.
Speaking on the issue, the spokesperson of Baloch National Movement appealed to the international community and particularly to the United Nations, to declare Balochistan as a no fly zone to ensure that not more Balochs are victimized by the heavy bombardments that Pakistan army carries out in the areas. He further emphasized that United Nations should immediately send its peace keeping forces in Balochistan and investigate the grave human rights violations being committed by Pakistan in Balochistan. .....
An organization claiming to work for the restoration of peace in Balochistan province has confessed to the killings of many activists, and has announced its intention to kill 35 more activists on its hit list in recent weeks. The organization has three activists in its custody and announces that at any time their bodies will be gifted to the nationalist movement of Balochistan. There has been no action from the authorities against the organization however.
It is alleged that the organization, Tehreek-e-Nefaz-e-Aman Balochistan (TNAB; movement for the restoration of peace in Balochistan), has been formed by secret agencies, particularly by the ISI, to crush the nationalist movement, which is against military intervention in the province and does not allow the people of Balochistan to control their rich natural resources. ....
Pakistan has extended its Baloch genocidal policies from Balochistan to Afghanistan: Sher Mohammad Bugti...
We appeal to the international bodies to gain access to Balochistan particularly to the Marri-Bugti regions and bring up the facts of state atrocities to expose the real face of the anti-Baloch Pakistani forces. Pakistani forces have recently repeated the history of “Karbala” in Lyari where they suspended even the water supply to the besieged Baloch population.....
Despite the ongoing operation in Dera Bugti and the reports about the Baloch refugees in Afghanistan, if the state still claims that there is no military operation underway in any part of Balochistan then media and international fact finding missions should be invited and allowed to visit certain areas of Balochistan specially the Marri-Bugti regions to bring up the facts. We appeal to the international community to take notice of the anti-Baloch policies of Pakistan and take action against the state according to the international laws for an end to the state atrocities and barbarism against the Baloch.

...VOA Urdu service’s reports and analyses are all about encouragement of terrorism in Afghanistan in between lines and intelligence guidance to Talban and Al Qaeda.
For instance look at today’s reports of the VOA Urdu Service report where it has ignored the attack on peaceful protester and on vehicle of brothers of Mir Bakhtiar Domki in which two of their bodyguards were killed and five others seriously wounded near Sibi, Balochistan.
In comparison to VOA Urdu if we look at other international media like BBC Urdu, we find that it has fairly reported the massacre that Pakistan military carried out in Balochistan today!
We protest against such biased behaviour of VOA Urdu and urge the management of to take up this issue with senior officials of Urdu section of VOA that why Balochistan is being ignored and discriminated against.
The victims suffer from worse crisis as the injured lack any kind of medical help which may, too, increase the death toll. No immediate reach and extreme cold weather have added to the sufferings. Reports of numerous livestock dying in the operation and many sheep and goats being taken by the army straight to their camps.
According to sources, four gunship helicopters and three PAF fighter jets took part in the operation. Chemical bombs that included Cluster, Napalm and Phosphorous bombs were shelled over the local population resulting in death of scores of women and children including infants. The entire area was covered with black smoke during the massacre.
Baloch National Voice appeals to UN, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Red Cross and other world organizations to immediately send their independent fact finding commissions to Balochistan to help stop the ongoing crisis.

Balochistan was forcefully annexed by Pakistan in March 1948 against the will of the Baloch people. As a result five armed insurgencies were witnessed against the occupation of Balochistan by Pakistan. The fifth and the longest continued insurgency started in 2001 which has intensified in 2005 when Pakistan Air Forces (PAF) bombed several areas of Balochistan and killed innocent women and children. In any war the victims has always been unarmed civilians so is the case in Balochistan.
The spokesman of BNV further said: “The reason behind the military operations in Kohistan Marri, Bolan and Dera Bugti and the dumping of dead bodies of Jawad Naseer, Abdul Samad Tagrani, Gohram Baloch, Faraz Baloch, Khiyam Baloch, Zubair Baloch, Omed Baloch and other is to deprive the Baloch nation from the happiness of Eid, the traditional Muslim festival. The brutal killings on the day of Eid expose the real face of Pakistan. It is hypocrisy to call this brutal state a Muslim country. The Baloch youth should unite on one-point agenda to counter these killings because the chains of slavery are going to vanish very soon.”
