Bahrain Mirror: Activists said that Haj Hamid Mostafa Jawad Ahmad died on Monday (March 16, 2020) in a heart stroke. He is the fifth Bahraini to die among those stranded in Iran.

According to a statistic prepared by Al-Wefaq, Bahrainis in Iran have exceeded 2,000 citizens. One batch was evacuated on an Omani Peace Airlines flight.

After the first batch arrived in the country, the Ministry of Health announced that more than 77 people on board had been infected. Official authorities then suspended the evacuation of the remaining citizens.

Stranded Bahrainis in Iran complain of running out of money and medicine (many of whom suffer from chronic diseases), in the absence of adequate health care due to the enormous pressure on health services in Iran, which recorded more than 850 deaths and about 15,000 infected according to the latest statistics issued by the Iranian Ministry of Health.

Bahrainis being stranded in Iran puts them at risk and death possibility, activists say. Meanwhile Bahraini officials blame the Iranian government.
