Aftermath – #AwaranOperation – 18 July To 18 August 2015

On the 1st day of Eid-ul-Fitr around 7:00 AM Pakistan Army commenced its military operations in District Awaran by bombarding the villages and hamlets of Kolwah with three Pakistan Air Force fighter jets and nine helicopter gunships and then ground forces push in killing and abducting everyone indiscriminately.

During this month long military operation and siege 26 villages and hamlets were completely destroyed; 157 people, including women and children, were either abducted or killed and buried in unmarked graves at unknown places. No one knows about the fate of the missing.

Awaran Military operation and siege is a brazen display of a new level of Pakistan Army’s brutality against Baloch masses and intensification of Baloch genocide with total impunity as the world is as silent as the dead in a cemetery.

Video clips were shot on a few sites that came under Pakistan army’s direct assault.
