2017-01-28 - 8:21 م

Bahrain Mirror: The Bahrain Human Rights Society said it followed up the incident of masked civilian armed forces attacking protesters staged near Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim's house in Diraz, on Thursday dawn (January 26, 2017). The forces used live bullets and shotguns against protesters, causing a serious head injury to Mostafa Hamdan (17 years), and leading to him entering a state of coma.

Moreover, the society said, "We followed with grave concern the implications of the unjustified Diraz siege as it enters day 222, and the continuous assault of security forces against peaceful protests. We call on competent authorities to reassess the security measures, which have escalated recently."

The Bahrain Human Rights Society further called for serious investigations in the shooting against citizen Mostafa Hamdan, and refer the case to the judiciary, to prevent the recurrence of such incidents, and to prevent impunity.
