According to the Shiite News,Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi deplored deployment of Saudi forces in Bahrain, warning that the move will have dire consequences for regional stability and security.
"Such measures will mount tension and undermine stability and security in the region," Vahidi said after a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

He denounced Saudi invasion of Bahrain and added, "Governments should safeguard people and their independence. They should not invite other countries to assault and kill their people."

The Iranian minister went on to warn that the region would turn into "a center for incendiarism, hostility and clash" should such 'destabilizing and illegal' moves continue.

Demonstrators in Bahrain have been demanding constitutional reforms as well as an end to the 230-year-old monarchy, with hundreds camping out peacefully in the capital's Pearl Square since February 14th.

Bahraini security forces have been brutally suppressing anti-government protesters. So far, at least 24 people have been martyred, almost 40 have gone missing, 250 have been arrested  and about 1,000 others have been injured.

The violence against protesters escalated when Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar dispatched their armed forces to the country upon Manama's request to help with the crackdown on peaceful protesters.
