Bahrain Mirror: Heavily armed forces raided Diraz village where thousands of Bahrainis have been protesting since 6 months outside the house of the spiritual leader of Shia majority Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim.

The heavy presence of security forces in the village led to clashes between the protestors and policemen, which resulted in a number of injuries, described as simple according to eyewitnesses.

The security forces withdrew from the perimeter of the protest square. Meanwhile, residents made a human fence around Sheikh Qassim's house, whose nationality was revoked 6 months earlier.

Thousands of citizens have been protesting outside Sheikh Qassim's house since June 20. Neither the arrests nor the tight siege on the village was able to put an end to this protest.
