The regime’s forces on Monday stormed houses in the town of al-Dayeh west of the capital Manama, arresting six citizens, Bahrain’s Lulu TV reported.

Other reports suggested that Bahraini forces had also raided the districts of Hamad and Jad Hafs in search of dissidents.

The arrests come as Manama is scheduled to hold parliamentary elections on November 24.
