Bahraini forces detain 7 civilians including children in Diraz

According to information, the troops, dressed in civilian clothes, arrested seven people in an initial toll, including children.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Bahraini forces raided on Wednesday (March 21, 2018) more than 18 houses in the Diraz area, west of the Bahraini capital, Manama, home to the Shia spiritual leader in the country Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim.

According to information, the troops, dressed in civilian clothes, arrested seven people in an initial toll, including children.

The information confirmed that the houses were vandalized and robbed of some of its contents before the seven citizens were arrested.

Those who were taken into custody are: Hussein Mohammed Saleh, Sayed Ahmed Sayed Majid, Hassan Mulla Ali Jassem, Mohammed Fadel Abdul Rahim, Hassan Abdul Khaleq Jassim, Hassan Isa Al Fatlawi and Qasim Aqeel Fadl.

Thousands of anti-regime protesters have held demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular uprising began in the country in mid-February 2011. They are demanding that the Al Khalifah regime relinquish power and allow a just system representing all Bahrainis to be established.

Manama has gone to great lengths to clamp down on any sign of dissent. On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were deployed to assist Bahrain in its crackdown.

Scores of people have lost their lives and hundreds of others sustained injuries or got arrested as a result of the Al Khalifah regime’s crackdown.
