Pakistan army is now using Chinese drones to crush rebellion in Balochistan: Reports

Quetta: The Pakistani Army, in their bid to crush the rebellion, are using  Chinese-origin combat CH-4B drones in Balochistan, media reports said on Monday.

Earlier this month, Pakistan allegedly conducted a massive military offensive against Baloch rebels in the Bolan region by deploying unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), fighter jets, and Gunship helicopters, along with SSG Commandos, according to Balochistan Post-English as quoted by The Eurasian Times.

According to reports, the Pakistani Army deployed jets against Baloch nationalists in the highlands of Bolan in Balochistan.

The Pakistani military operations were resisted by the Baloch militias, which, in turn, killed two SSG Commandos. EurAsian Times could not independently verify the number of Pakistani commandos killed by the rebels, the news portal reported.

While the Pakistani Army has used fighter jets and armed helicopters against Baloch rebels for several years, the use of combat UAVs is new and is continuously increasing, reported the news portal.

Meanwhile, Balochistan Post-English tweeted: "TBP Exclusive: Pakistani combat unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) with payloads spotted in skies of Bolan earlier today. An unprecedented military operation is underway in Bolan involving UAVs, fighter jets, gunship helicopters and SSG commandos since last five days."
