Anti Government Protests again gaining momentum in Bahrain
Thousands of Bahrainis attended a rally for political reforms in the village of Sar, west of the capital Manama on Saturday.
The rally called “Bahrain homeland for all” has been organized by the main opposition group, al-Wefaq.
The Bahraini regime continues its brutal crackdown on protests despite lifting a martial law on June 1.
New footage emerged on Saturday, in which Saudi-backed troops were attacking women and children in Diraz town.
Saudi-backed forces also opened fire on Bahraini youths during the confrontation in Diraz.
On May 8, Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa issued a royal decree declaring June 1 to be the end of the nationwide martial law. The state of emergency was originally declared in March.
On Friday, Bahrainis took to the streets in large numbers after Friday Prayers and called for an end to the rule of the Al Khalifa family.
In response, Saudi-backed regime forces stormed into the village of Karbabad and detained several anti-regime protesters.
Thousands of anti-government protesters have been staging demonstrations in Bahrain since mid-February, demanding political reforms and a constitutional monarchy, a demand that later changed into an outright call for the ouster of the ruling Al Khalifa family following its brutal crackdown on popular protests.
Scores of people have been killed and hundreds, including doctors and journalists, arrested in the Saudi-backed crackdown on peaceful protesters in Bahrain.
Human rights groups and the families of protesters arrested during the crackdown say that most detainees have been physically and mentally abused, while the whereabouts of many of them remain unknown.
Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have criticized the Manama regime for its brutal crackdown on civilians.
