Bahraini security forces descended on the country’s northern town of A’ali on Wednesday, ransacking a number of homes.
In the immediate aftermath of the latest raids, activists posted images online showing the damage inflicted on private property.
Meanwhile, armed men wearing ski masks were snapped manning their posts as police vehicles flooded the town’s narrow streets.
There is no news yet of any arrests. Similar raids in recent days have resulted in a number of Bahrainis being detained.
Young men are often taken into custody without arrest warrants or any legal justification. Most end up in integration rooms where agents of Manama’s security apparatus subject them to torture and other forms of ill treatment.
