BLA claimed the attack on the Pearl Continental Hotel in Gwadar last week (AFP)GWADAR, PAKISTAN: A day after claiming the responsibility for the attack on the iconic Pearl Continental Hotel here, the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) released a video message on Sunday.
In the four-minute long video, the BLA militants are heard warning China stop "aiding Pakistan to brutally suppress Baloch civilians." The video was posted at vimeo.com.
"Baloch youth has time and again warned China to immediately stop its exploitation of Baloch land. But China has failed to take notice of our genuine concerns. China is using Baloch land to further its evil designs and in doing so it is aiding Pakistan to brutally suppress Baloch civilians."
The BLA militants claimed that scores of families in Balochistan have "suffered at the hands of Pakistan military" due to China's ambitious infrastructure project- China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
