bahrain girlPoisonous tear gas used by Bahraini al-Khalifa forces against peaceful anti-government protesters has martyred 43 years old woman in Jid Hafas.

The victim, identified as Asiyeh al Madih, 43, martyred on Sunday after a tear gas canister hit her when

walking in a street  during an overnight attack by regime forces in Jid Hafas.

According to reports, she moved to hospital  and after hours of remaining under treatment, Asiyeh al Madih could not bear and hence doctors confirmed her martyrdom.

Bahraini troops heavily rely on tear gas and stun grenades to disperse peaceful anti-government protesters. Several Bahraini civilians, mostly senior citizens and kids, have died from asphyxia after regime troops fired tear gas in residential areas and into homes in violation of international standards that Bahrain is a signatory to.

Bahrainis have been staging demonstrations since mid-February 2011, demanding political reform and a constitutional monarchy, a demand that later changed to an outright call for the ouster of the ruling Al Khalifa family following its brutal crackdown on popular protests.

Ninety-six people have been killed and many others injured in the Saudi-backed crackdown on peaceful protesters in Bahrain.
