Bahrain Mirror: The Bahraini militant who fights in the ranks of the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), nicknamed "Abu Laden Al-Bahraini" said that those whom he described as the "troops of the tyrant Hamad" had arrested "Sunni youths in Bahrain."

On his Twitter account, he stated that on the 16th of Ramadan (Sunday, July 5, 2015), the Bahraini authorities arrested "21-year-old Saleh Al-Balouchi" from his workplace."

Abu Laden Al-Bahraini also revealed in another tweet that two Bahrainis were arrested in the Sultanate of Oman, one of them is called "Naser Al-Hajaji-20 years old" and the other is "Mohammed Mesaad-20 years old" on May 28, 2015, explaining that Naser Al-Hajaji was arrested in Muscat International Airport and was directly handed over to Bahraini authorities.

The ISIS militant went on to say that "the Bahraini authorities arrested Omar 18-year-old Al-Firi, after raiding his house on the 16th of Ramadan (Sunday, July 5, 2015)".

Abu Laden Al-Bahraini also stressed that these arrests were not the first of their kind, as Saleh Al-Yafei-22 years old was arrested on January 16, 2015, in addition to the preacher Abdulla Al-Binali-27 years old, on April 20, 2015.

The authorities are blacking out any arrests of those joining extremist organizations inside Bahrain, while publishing photos of arrested dissidents and democracy advocates on state media outlets and trying them under the Anti-Terrorism Act.
