Bahraini regime forces clash with demonstrators

Bahraini regime’s security forces have once again engaged in fierce clashes with a group of protesters, using teargas canisters and rubber bullets to disperse them.

The Saudi-backed Bahraini forces attacked protesters in the village of Nuwaidrat, situated about 10 kilometers (six miles) south of the capital, Manama, as well as the village of Muqabah on Tuesday.

One demonstrator was wounded in Nuwaidrat when a teargas canister hit him in the head.

In Muqabah, people took to the streets, chanting anti-regime slogans and calling on the Al Khalifah ruling family to step down.

Bahrain has been witnessing a popular uprising since February 2011.

On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were deployed to Bahrain to assist the Manama regime in its crackdown on peaceful protesters.

Many Bahrainis have been tortured or killed and hundreds more injured and arrested during the regime’s ongoing crackdown on peaceful demonstrations.

Bahrain has been severely criticized by human rights groups for its harsh crackdown on anti-regime protests.
