Pakistan Launches Rockets At Baloch Militants, Iranian Civilians Record Impact

This compilation of footage shows the Pakistani military launching a salvo of rockets at a Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) camp in Iran, as well as Iranian civilians recording the strike via social media.


The BLF is the military arm of a long-standing, ethnic separatist movement, seeking independence for the Western region of Pakistan known as Balochistan. They feel that Pakistan unfairly exploits natural resources in the region, which is on the border of both Iran and Pakistan. The Pakistani military conducted this strike (which also included aircraft not pictured here) in response to a recent BLF attack which killed Pakistani civilians, including children. Historically, BLF has also attacked Chinese miners and workers with interests in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
