Pakistan Armed Forces Rampage through Dera Bugti

On Wednesday August 14th, after 1240 days of hunger strike demonstrations in Quetta, the Protest Camp for Families of Missing Persons was burned and ransacked by Pakistan Security Forces.  The camp was founded by Mama Abdul Qadir Baloch after his son Jalil Reki (a leader of BRP) was abducted in 2009.  Jalil’s bullet riddled body was recovered 2 years later in 2011.  Since its inception 3 years ago, the camp has been home to the families of victims of abductions and extra-judicial killings.  Only days before the attack, Mama Qadir had received death threats by Pakistan Security Agents who demanded the camp be dismantled.

August 16th, in the town of Mach, Pakistan Armed Forces deployed a helicopter gunship during a ruthless assault on the Mach residents.  10 civilians were killed and dozens injured in Friday’s attack. 
On Saturday Naveed s/o Saleh Mohd was abducted on Makran Coastal Highway near Gwadr.  Naveed was a resident of the nearby town of Pishukan.  In Satellite Town, Quetta,  one person was shot by unidentified gunmen.

Pakistan Armed Forces continue their vicious rampage in Dera Bugti regions through the weekend conducting operations in RD 238, Muhan Patt and Deenari Patt.  Pakistani Soldiers are conducting loot and burn operations, indiscriminately firing upon Baloch civilians. Several Baloch have been killed and many abductions have been reported.  Sunday August 18th the disfigured remains of 2 previously abducted BRP activists have been discovered in Sui.  One of them has been identified as Ismail Bugti.  Ismail was abducted by Pakistani agents on August 14th in the Zenkoh region of Dera Bugti. 
Much like the attacks in Bolan on August 11th, the Pakistani Forces have been dumping previously abducted and murdered Baloch activists while conducting loot and burn operations in order to justify both; the ongoing attacks on civilian villages, and the murders of the abductees by falsely labelling their victims as insurgents and terrorists.   Reports of killings and abductions continue to surface from the Dera Bugti regions as the Pakistani Death Squads continue their destructive rampage.

On Monday August 20th, In Killi Qambarini Quetta, Pakistan Armed Forces killed three Baloch and abducted several others.   The bodies of abductees Ghafoor and Ramzan Baloch were found in Surjani town Karachi.  In Saami Kech one person was shot dead by unidentified gunmen.
