Bahrainis continue anti-regime protests

Bahrainis continue anti-regime protests
World  - People in Bahrain once again poured into the streets in various cities to condemn the Manama regime’s continued crackdown on dissidents and to denounce the prime minister’s “sham” resignation.

During the protests on Sunday night, the Al Khalifa regime forces attacked peaceful demonstrators in Diraz, west of Manama, Bahraini opposition media reported.

The protesters condemned the recent arrest and imprisonment of three Bahraini sisters on political grounds.

They also described Bahraini Prime Minister Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa's move to resign after the end of the parliament and municipal council elections as a sham.

In a cabinet session on Sunday, the Bahraini premier announced that the resignation of the cabinet had been submitted to the Bahraini king.

General elections in Bahrain were held across the Persian Gulf country on November 24 as two main opposition groups, the Al-Wefaq and Waad, were barred from fielding candidates, prompting renewed calls for a boycott.

Bahrain, a close ally of the US in the Persian Gulf region, has been witnessing almost daily protests against the ruling Al Khalifa dynasty since early 2011, with Manama using heavy-handed measures in an attempt to crush the demonstrations.

Scores of Bahrainis have been killed and hundreds of others injured and arrested in the ongoing crackdown on the peaceful demonstrations.

Amnesty International and many other international rights organizations have frequently censured the Bahraini regime for the rampant human rights abuses against opposition groups and anti-regime protesters.

Since 1980s, the ruling Al Khalifa regime has been trying to change the Kingdom's demographic structure which largely consists of Shiites.
