Aslam Baloch among six top BLA leaders killed in Kandhar suicide attack

From News desk *( Balochistan Times)*

A suicide bomber hit Baloch militant leaders in a residential area in Kandahar’s Aino Mina area on Tuesday, killing Aslam Baloch and five other top Baloch militant leaders and wounding three others.

Aslam Baloch was a top commander of the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) who initiated a recent campaign of suicide attacks against Chinese nationals in Pakistan.

Aslam’s son, Rehan Baloch, carried out a suicide attack on a bus carrying Chinese engineers in Dalbandeen in August this year. Later, in November, four gunmen sent by Aslam, attacked Chinese consulate in Karachi, killing two police officers guarding the premises.

Aslam Baloch blamed China of exploiting Baloch resources in the CPEC project and vowed to go to any extent to stop “Chinese colonialism” in Balochistan.
In a statement issued late on Tuesday night, the BLA confirmed the killing of Aslam Baloch and six other BLA fighters but didn’t disclose the circumstances of the killings.

However, sources confirmed to Balochistan Times that a suicide bomber detonated himself at Road No3, First Aino Mina in Kandahar where Aslam Baloch was residing.

Others killed in the attack were Sardar alias Tajoo, Commander Marri alias Rahim Baloch, Akhtar Baloch alias Rustom, Sangat Fareed Baloch and Sadiq Baloch.
The attack does not only confirm Pakistan’s persisting influence over Afghan Taliban but also resonates with Islamabad’s claims that Kabul is providing refuge to Baloch separatist militants.

The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
