Bahrain Mirror: A number of Bahraini clerics staged a rally today on Saturday (July 16, 2016) to voice their solidarity with Bahraini Shia spiritual leader Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim and denounce the authorities' decision to revoke his citizenship.

"Ayatollah Qassim represents a symbol of the Shia sect in the country and targeting him means the entire sect is being targeted," stressed the clerics during the rally.

They further called for "reversing this decision to guarantee the country's security and stability," expressing their complete rejection of the move.

The clerics also demanded "lifting the siege on the Diraz area, which was imposed since the launch of the central sit-in staged outside Ayatollah Qassim's house on June 20."
