Pakistan Army is losing grip over region, says PoK activist on recent attack on KP

| @indiablooms | 29 Mar 2024, 06:27 pm

Amjad Ayub Mirza, a political activist from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), reacted to the recent suicide attack in  Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and said it reflected that Pakistan Army was losing control in the region and  Baloch fighters were growing in strength.

“Let us not forget that this is not the first time that the Chinese have been targeted on this route. In 2021, there was a suicide attack on a bus and nine Chinese engineers had lost lives, resulting in the escalation of discomfort between China and Pakistan,” Amjad was quoted as saying by ANI.

“This attack is very significant as it seems to be a sub contract job, like one organisation has given the task to another organisation to execute the task. For instance, the Baloch Liberation Army or other organisations could have sub-contracted the other organisations like Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan to execute the attack,” the PoK activist further said.

“We are seeing growing intensification of attacks on Chinese assets. These coordinated attacks signify two things. First it signifies that the Pakistani Army is losing control in the region. Second, it signifies the growing strength and resilience of Baloch fighters. I think this is the final phase of the Baloch struggle," he said.

Pakistani authorities have filed an FIR into the Shangla suicide attack incident which left at least five Chinese engineers killed, media reports said.

At least five Chinese engineers and their Pakistani driver were killed after a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden vehicle into their convoy.

The convoy consisting of 12 vehicles was travelling from Islamabad to Dasu Dam in Kohistan, when a suicide bomber hit one of the coaches with an explosive-laden vehicle, the FIR stated as quoted by ARY News.

Dasu is the site of a major dam in the country.

Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif directed to initiate a thorough investigation into the incident.
