At least 5 Bahraini people have been killed in regime forces’ raid on the town of Diraz. According to Bahraini Interior Ministry, more than 280 people were also detained during the attack. Following the incident, protesters poured into the streets in several towns across the country to condemn the bloody attack. The demonstrators chanted anti-government slogans and expressed solidarity with the country’s top cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim. Bahraini forces fired tear gas to disperse the angry crowd. The raid on Diraz comes two days after a Bahraini court sentenced Sheikh Qassim to one year in prison. The measure drew criticism from both inside and outside the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom. Iran’s FM: “Deadly regime attack on Bahraini protesters result of Trump’s ‘cozying up’ to Saudis”.
