JNN 23 July 2011 : Saudi Arabia has deployed more forces in Bahrain in an attempt to further help King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa’s crackdown on anti-government demonstrators.
According to Press TV, the convoy of the Saudi armored vehicles arrived to the crisis-hit Bahrain on Saturday, Rasad News reported.
Meanwhile, a new footage has emerged showing the Al Khalifa regime’s continuing its brutal crackdown on the demonstrators.
The anti-regime protesters have been rallying in Bahrain since mid-February, demanding an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty, which has ruled the Persian Gulf country for over 40 years.
In mid-March, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates deployed their first batch of military forces to the Sheikhdom.
Scores of protesters have been killed — many under torture — and numerous others detained and transferred to unknown locations during the regime’s brutal onslaught on protesters.
Manama rulers have even engaged in arresting rights activists, opposition figures, journalists, former lawmakers, senior clerics, doctors and nurses.
According to Bahrain Center for Human Rights, a non-governmental organization, there are currently over 1,000 political detainees inside the country.
Additionally, both the United Nations Human Rights office and Amnesty International have criticized the Al Khalifa regime for its violations of international law by brutally cracking down on peaceful protesters and activists.
Bahraini activists say their protest campaign will continue until the nation’s demands are met.
Bahrain’s top cleric, Sheikh Issa Qasim, has condemned the desecration and demolition of mosques and holy sites by the Saudi-backed regime forces.
In a statement issued on Saturday after an open seminar in Sanabis, west of Manama, Sheikh Qasim demanded that houses of worship be accorded full respect and called on the Bahraini authorities to halt all sectarian discrimination in the Persian Gulf island nation, a Press TV correspondent reported.
He also urged the government to rebuild all the mosques and holy sites demolished by Saudi troops and Bahraini security forces during the clampdown on anti-regime protesters over the past few months.
Bahraini regime forces have razed at least 52 mosques and more than 500 religious sites since the anti-regime protests began.
On March 18, the Bahraini authorities leveled the monument on Manama’s Pearl Square, which was the epicenter of the anti-government protests.
The iconic central structure was demolished two days after Bahraini and Saudi forces, backed by tanks and helicopters, cleared the landmark square where anti-government protesters had camped out for several weeks. A Pakistani crane operator was crushed to death after being ordered to destroy the monument.
Scores of people have been killed and hundreds more arrested in the Saudi-backed crackdown on the peaceful uprising in Bahrain — a subservient ally of the United States and home to the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet.
