Occupied Balochistan: In the one of the most isolated places on this globe, a systematical genocide is being conducted by the Pakistani Army. Local and International Media do not have access to this part of the world and more ever the Pakistani military establishment has made it impossible for any kind of media coverage, it is the social media that is focusing some light on this blind spot. We are trying to collect and share some pictures of this renewed and ongoing genocide in Balochistan. These pictures are of the houses bombarded with gunship helicopters. We will also try to collect pictures of the civilian population who were killed or injured. As the news and pictures leak from the siege enforced by Pakistani military we shall try to keep you informed. [Text from video description]

On December 25th, 2012, the Pakistan Frontier Corps launched a military operation in southern Balochistan’s Mashky area, in Awaran District. The operation has received little or no attention in the Pakistani media. Tanqeed speaks to Malik Siraj Akbar, editor-in-chief of the banned online paper, The Baloch Hal, to get an update on the situation, and a take on why the Mashky atrocities have been ignored
Tanqeed (TQ): What is the status of the Mashkey operation right now?
Malik Siraj Akbar (MSA): On its fifth day, the operation has relatively slowed down as far as firing and door-to-door search operations are concerned. The heavy deployment of the Frontier Corps (F.C.) is still in place. According to local residents, the security forces have established at least 12 new check posts. The deployment of the F.C. has restricted civilian movement and caused a shortage of edible supplies in the area and also blocked road communications. At least 20 people, including women and children, have been killed in the operation. The Baloch insurgents have also inflicted losses on the F.C. and the F.C., on its part, says most of the people killed in the operation were ‘terrorists’, a charge the locals deny.
Most of the country was distracted by the frenzy of a cricket match against rival India, while its tiny Christian population was observing one of their darkest years ever.
But the condition of Pakistan’s Christians on this, their “dark Christmas,” paled when compared to what was unfolding in the country’s southwest region at the mouth of the Persian Gulf.
