Designation of Balochistan Liberation Army by the US Administration as Specially Designated Global Terrorist
Islamabad, July 02, 2019 (PPI-OT): We have taken note of the designation by the U.S. Administration of the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) as Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT). BLA remains a proscribed entity in Pakistan since 2006 and in recent times has carried out several terrorist attacks in the country.
It is hoped that this designation will ensure that BLA’s space to operate is minimized. It is important that the perpetrators, organizers, financiers and external sponsors including those glorifying these acts of terror against Pakistan are held accountable and brought to justice.
