QUETTA: Pakistan army has started a crackdown on an entire population in Mastung area of Balochistan and destroyed several houses on Friday.
According to details, the armed forces of Pakistan raided a Baloch populated area in Ispelinji’s Kaabo village in Mastung and razed to ground several houses of poor villagers.
A few years ago, Pakistani forces set several houses on fire in the same village and carried out repeated offensives in the region due to which most of the population fled to other areas.
However, on Friday, January 5, 2018, the Pakistan armed forces once again returned to Killi Kaabo and bulldozed almost all the houses.
Recent years Pakistan forces have launched offensives that are tantamount to the collative punishment of entire population and families of Baloch political activists.
Many villages in Balochistan’s Kohlu, Dera Bugti, Awaran districts and several other regions have been destroyed to force the inhabitants to evacuate their native villages.
Meanwhile, Pakistan has deployed large numbers of fresh troops and sealed entrance and exit routes of Sahiji in district Kech Balochistan.
Sources reported that armed troops have been deployed at Khadan, Darwaar, Malai Negwar, Cheyatag and Shooli’s mountainous regions.
Local sources reported that people are not being allowed to either enter or leave the besieged areas.
There was a sense of fear and panic that Pakistan forces were preparing to start new offensives against innocent residents of the military encircled populations.
