Bahrain Mirror: King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa paid a visit to Bahrain Defence Force (BDF) General Command on Sunday (July 29, 2018), where he was welcomed by Defence Minister Yusef Al-Jalahma, Chief of Staff Dhiab bin Saqr Al-Nuaimi and senior officers.
The absence of BDF Commander-in-Chief Marshal Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa was remarkable.
