The al-Khalifa regime launched a brutal crackdown on the peaceful protests and called in Saudi-led Arab forces from neighboring states.

Moreover, Bahrain’s opposition group al-Wefaq Association reported that more than 200 people, including a woman and 19 children, were detained during the regime crackdown on protesters in July.

At least 80 people have been killed in Bahrain since anti-regime protests erupted in mid-February 2011.
