Pakistan Army Requests Iran For Assistance To Tackle Baloch Republican Army

Published

on

Pakistan Army Chief  Gen Bajwa has asked for Iranian assistance in tackling Baloch militants allegedly operating from its soil. This came days after the Pakistan Army lost six soldiers in an IED blast claimed by the Baloch Republican Army (BLA).

Bajwa called Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces Maj Gen Mohammad Baqeri after the BLA attack on a Frontier Corps patrol in the Buleda area of Kech district in which six troops were killed. The attack,  as EurAsian Times reported, took place merely 14km from the Pakistan-Iran border

Gen Bajwa, as IRNA rep­orted, “prompted the exchange of expert delegations to control border security and deter terrorist moves on common borders”. He also informed the Iranian counterpart about the steps being taken by the Islamabad to check unofficial cross-border mobility.

Pakistan and Iran share over 900km-long border, which is plagued with felonious gangs, rebels and drug traffickers. Pakistan says that terror organizations operating along the border executed various attacks and thus wants to tighten the border.

As EurAsian Times reported earlier, the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) has claimed the attack of Pakistan Army convoy while returning from Pakistan-Iran border. A statement by the Baloch Liberation Army read – The vehicle in the convoy was completely destroyed when it was hit by an IED installed by the BLA, resulting in eliminating six Pakistani Army personnel including an army major and injuring several others.

Balochistan has become a massive source of insurgency in Pakistan. Over the past few years, numerous people including Pakistan army soldiers have lost their lives to terror attacks in the restive province and the Baloch Liberation Army (BPA) has emerged as a formidable opponent to Islamabad.
