Baloch Republican Army (Urdu: بلوچ ریپبلکن آرمی) is a Baloch nationalist armed militant group that seeks an independent homeland for the Baloch people, based in Balochistan. The organization was formed in 2006. B.R.A is involved in terrorist activities against the Pakistan Army. Baloch Republican Army conducts conventional and unconventional battles against Pakistan Army and mostly operates through guerrilla tactics such as ambush, sabotage and hit and run activities.

The prime targets of the Baloch Republican Army are the Security Forces of Pakistan and their installations including headquarters, check-posts and outposts, convoys, offices and personnel; state machinery and infrastructure like railway lines, communication system, gas pipelines, wells and plants, electricity pylons and any other system.

Baloch Republican Army rejects foreign investment in Balochistan whether by Pakistani or any other country through multinational companies. B.R.A does not allow Pakistani foreign and Pakistani companies to use the natural resources of Balochistan without the consent of Baloch people. It has launched multiple attacks against Pakistani forces, local and foreign companies busy in plunder of Baloch resources and state machinery and installations. Many of its fighters train in guerrilla camps in the rugged mountains of Afghanistan and also have a large number of fighters in the urban areas who carry out attacks on the targets like vehicles of Pakistani forces, innocent civilians and convoys of international companies such as USAID, UN aid agencies and other NGO's. In recent years, the terrorist activities of this organization have been undermined by Pakistani operations against terrorist organization along the frontier with Afghanistan.
