Saudi-backed Bahraini forces have once again launched a heavy crackdown on anti-regime protesters near the capital, Manama.
On Wednesday, the Al Khalifa regime forces brutally dispersed the protesters staging a demonstration in the northern village of Daih, west of Manama, to mourn the death of a Bahraini child during a similar protest.
Qasim Habib, an eight-year-old child, died due to inhalation of poisonous tear gas fired by regime forces during a demonstration in Karbabad village near the capital on January 26.
Last year, Amnesty International warned about the Bahraini regimeâ€™s misuse of tear gas against protesters and called for an investigation into the tear gas-related deaths.
Bahrainis have been staging demonstrations since mid-February 2011, demanding political reform and a constitutional monarchy, a demand that later changed to an outright call for the ouster of the ruling Al Khalifa family following its brutal crackdown on popular protests.
The Manama regime has arrested many rights activists, doctors and nurses since the uprising began.
Bahrainis say they will continue holding anti-regime demonstrations until their demand for the establishment of a democratically-elected government and an end to rights violations is met.
