Pakistan: BLA Claims Responsibility for Attack on PNS Siddique Naval Airbase in Turbat

International Desk, 26th March: The PNS Siddique in Turbat, the second-largest naval air station in Pakistan, came under attack, reportedly claimed by the Majeed Brigade of the banned Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA).

The Majeed Brigade, critical of China’s investments in Balochistan, accuses both China and Pakistan of exploiting the region’s resources.

According to BLA reports, fighters have infiltrated the airbase, with additional reports of Chinese drones being deployed at the facility.

As the situation unfolded, Turbat saw a surge in military activity, with helicopters patrolling the skies and heavy gunfire and explosions continuing for over three hours.

The BLA claimed to have killed “over a dozen” Pakistani personnel in the attack, releasing an audio clip allegedly from one of its fighters attacking the PNS Siddique, where the fighter claimed to have targeted various vehicles.

In response, an emergency was declared at Teaching Hospital Turbat, with all doctors instructed to report for duty immediately by the District Health Officer Kech.
