bahraiA 35-year-old Bahraini man has died due to inhaling tear gas fired by the Saudi-backed regime forces during a demonstration in the northeastern island of Sitra.

Reports say Jafar Jassem Ali al-Taweal lost his life when Bahraini forces fired toxic gas to disperse

protesters during an anti-regime demonstration in Sitra on Monday.

Scores of Bahrainis, including children, have died due to asphyxia after inhaling poisonous tear gas fired by police.

Last year, Amnesty International warned about the Manama regime’s misuse of tear gas against protesters and called for an investigation into the tear gas-related deaths.

On February 15, Aminah al-Sayyed Mahdi, 35, also died a month after inhaling toxic tear gas in an anti-Al Khalifa protest in the village of Abu Saiba.

Also in January, Qasim Habib Ja’far, an eight-year-old child, and another Bahraini man, Haj Habib Ibrahim Abdullah, died the same way when regime forces fired toxic gas to disperse protesters near the capital, Manama.

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.

The Manama regime has arrested many rights activists, doctors and nurses since the uprising began.

Bahrainis say they will continue holding anti-regime demonstrations until their demand for the establishment of a democratically-elected government and an end to rights violations is met.
