Prominent Bahraini human rights activist Nabeel Rajab has slammed the US government for arms sales to the Manama regime and Saudi Arabia.

The jailed activist made the remarks in an op-ed article published in The New York Times on Wednesday ahead of a scheduled visit by US President Donald Trump to Riyadh for a regional summit.

The Trump "administration already decided to lift all human rights restrictions on arms sales to my country, Bahrain, which is a partner in the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen," he said.

Saudi Arabia has been incessantly pounding Yemen since March 2015 in an attempt to reinstate Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, and to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement. The Riyadh regime has, however, failed to reach its goals despite suffering great expense.
