Baloch nationalist activists have started a social media campaign on social media to highlight the military operation in the Dasht area of Balochistan’s Makran region.
Although no confirmed reports have been received yet because of a media blockade in the region, the Baloch Human Rights Organization claimed over 90 locals had been picked up by the paramilitary Frontier Corps personnel in the operation since the latest operation started on November 1.
According to a report compiled by the group, which has named the victims, 16 of them were released later while the rest are still missing.
Dasht, a vast piece of land, is an umbrella name for dozens of backward, small villages stretching up to almost Balochistan’s coastal belt. It’s informally divided between the lower and upper Dasht.
The operation is mainly being conducted in the lower parts, which is home to the impenetrable Saheeji mountainous range where Baloch militants are seeking refuge.
