Monday October 21st The Awaran home of Mola Baksh was attacked by Pakistan Armed Forces during their ongoing operation to vacate the Earthquake Ravaged region.  On Tuesday another Awaran home, this time the residence of Jameel Ahmed was Attacked.  Pakistani forces Pillaged the civilian residences, Torturing the Women and Children.  Pakistan Military officials state the region is “the hotbed of the biggest insurgency in Pakistan” yet denies any military operations. 
Pakistan Military representative also claimed the “insurgents” were preventing delivery of incoming aid and inhibiting “rehabilitation” of the region, yet not one single NGO/INGO has reported being attacked by Baloch Separatists.  The statements of the Pakistan Armed Forces are absolutely contradictory to the facts, as they openly admit to refusing NGO/INGO access to the region.
On Tuesday October 22nd, Pakistani Agents Asharaf Salam & Liaqat, Destroyed the Baloch Welfare Committee Medical Camp.  The Plundered medical supplies were intended for Earthquake Victims at Teertaaj, Awaran.  October 30th Pakistani Paramilitary Forces resumed Indiscriminate Bombardment of Mashkai, this time targeting the Nokojo region.  Ali Pul s/o Fida Baloch was injured in the blasts.  Following the attack Mohmmad Afzal and his son Tariq were Abducted by the State Military Forces.

The Pakistan government claims they do not require any additional aid beyond the Paramilitary Forces currently deployed to the region, yet over a month has passed since the earthquakes and Awaran has seen no reconstruction.  The cold harsh winter is looming and Pakistan has again Failed the Baloch people.  Instead of warm food and shelter, the Awaran Earthquake Victims are fed empty promises, and concealed by Pakistan's thin veil of deceit.  Many of the Earthquake victims have opted to leave the region, relocating to other regions of Balochistan.  Those who remain have resolved to undertake the daunting task of rebuilding their homes themselves.
Many of the Earthquake Victims who relocated have been Targeted by Pakistani Agents in numerous Violent Military Operations.  In Hub, the new home of Arawan Earthquake Survivor Moula Baksh was attacked by Pakistani forces on October 25th.  In addition to inflicting acts of Abuse and Torture upon the Women and Children, Pakistani Agents abducted five family members during the raid.  14 year-old Balach Baloch, Amin Baloch, Elahi Baksh Baloch, and Azeem Baloch.  Only four days earlier in Labach Mashkai, Pakistani Agents had attacked their home and attempted to abduct the young Balach Baloch prompting the family to relocate to Hub.
