BALOCHISTAN: Many remote outskirts of Mashkay remain to be under complete siege for the seventh consecutive day. Villagers are being starved to death.

According to details, a curfew-like situation prevailed in many parts of Mashkay when Pakistan army and other law enforcement agencies launched a military offensive at the area, burning down scores of houses to ashes after looting all valuables and household items on September 11th, 2016.

Since that, Kandadi, Zong, Allangi, and many other villages are under complete siege. The villagers are trapped at their homes and their movement is restricted. The residents of these villages were even not allowed to perform collective Eid prayers.

The exact situation there cannot be determined as the siege continues and all means of communication are suspended, but multiple reports indicate that the villagers are suffering from severe shortage of foods, water, and other household items.
