A video going viral in the Baluch media of what looks like a Chinese Armed drone being shot down by the air defense regiment of the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA). BLA also has claimed to have shot down a Russian Mi-35 Gunship after insurgents launched twin assaults on bases of the paramilitary Frontier Corps in the Naushki and Panjgur districts, leading to the deaths of at least 14 soldiers and nine militants.

The Pakistani military is yet to clear these bases from the BLA fighters and Special Service Group (SSG) a special forces unit of the Pakistan Army sent to clear these bases suffered at least two losses after which they were withdrawn. Pakistani Army has suspended internet in the whole districts and Army Veterans who are regular on Pakistani media have been heard threatening Journalist from covering these attacks in depth so not to embarrass the Pakistani military.

After SSG failed to clear the bases, the Pakistani military asked civilians living near the base to clear the area and some Baluch handles have reported F-16 over the area probably to conduct areal bombing on the bases that remains under the control of BLA fighters even after three days. BLA fighters claimed to have killed over 170 Pakistani soldiers and mass scale helicopter activity in the area hints casualties are much higher than reported by Pakistani national media that are not allowed to go in this areas.

As predicted, Pakistani ISPR, a media and PR wing of the Pakistan Armed Forces blamed handlers in India for the attacks, and some Pakistani army veterans were also seen blaming Indian assets in Iran and Afghanistan for the rise in attacks on the Pakistani military in occupied Baluchistan.

Balochistan, the most impoverished province of Pakistan, has been a hotbed of a separatist insurgency for decades. The Baluch freedom fighters have opposed Chinese investment in Gwadar and other parts of Pakistan and called it the colonization and exploitation of the province by China and Pakistan.

China has pumped billions of dollars through the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in recent years in infrastructure and energy projects linking China’s far-western Xinjiang region with the strategic port of Gwadar in Balochistan, risks losing its investments due to rise in attacks coordinated by different Baluch freedom fighters.
