Bahrainis hold demos against Al Khalifa

Bahraini protesters have once again held demonstrations against the Al Khalifa regime in several towns.

The demonstrations were held early on Friday after the Eid al-Adha prayers, with protesters calling for the downfall of the Manama regime.

The demonstrators also demanded an end to the regime’s violent crackdown on peaceful protests.

Bahrain’s revolution began in mid-February 2011. The government promptly launched a brutal crackdown on the protests and called in Saudi-led Arab forces from neighboring Persian Gulf states to help crush the demonstrations.

On Wednesday, Saudi-backed Bahraini force attacked anti-regime protesters attempting to enter a besieged village in the east of the country.

Similar clashes also erupted on October 21, when security forces fired tear gas to disperse people heading to the village of al-Eker.

A report published by the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry in November 2011 said regime forces “resorted to the use of unnecessary and excessive force, terror-inspiring behavior and unnecessary damage to property” during popular protests in the country.
