Bahraini regime forces attack mourning Shia Muslims on Ashura

 

Bahraini regime forces have attacked dozens of Shia Muslims commemorating the occasion of Ashura, which marks the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein, peace be upon him, the third Shia Imam, as the regime presses ahead with its heavy-handed crackdown against peaceful protesters. 

On Sunday, the Manama regime’s forces raided the town of A'ali, situated about three kilometers southeast of the capital Manama, and fired tear gas canisters to disperse mourners chanting “Labaik Ya Hussain” to invoke the memory of Imam Hussein (PBUH). Dozens of people suffered breathing difficulties, red eyes and wheezing as a result.

Al Khalifah regime’s forces also stormed the village of Diraz, the hometown of distinguished Shia cleric, Sheikh Isa Qassim, and fired tear gas canisters while using pellet guns to scatter the Shia mourners, who had converged outside the cleric’s residence.
