(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Bahrain’s highest religious authority Sheikh Isa Qassim has been transferred to the intensive care unit after undergoing a second surgery in as many months.

The ailing cleric will reportedly be kept under close observation until Friday evening.

Sheikh Qassim was transferred to hospital earlier in the week after his health deteriorated.

According to a statement released by Bahrain’s opposition Al-Wefaq party on Wednesday, the authorities ‘procrastinated’ and ‘delayed’ his transfer to hospital for ten days.

Sheikh Qassim, whose health has been gradually deteriorating in recent months, was arbitrarily stripped of his Bahraini nationality in June 2016. Since then he has lived under virtual siege, and in May 2017 Manama’s security forces stormed his Diraz home and place him under house arrest.
