Bahraini regime forces attack mournersBahraini regime forces have attacked thousands of mourners attending the funeral ceremony of an elderly man in a village near the capital Manama, 

Saudi-backed regime forces attacked the gathering on Sunday. 

The mourners chanted slogans against the Bahraini regime and called for “the downfall of the ruling Al Khalifa family.” 

Earlier in the day, 73-year-old Ali Ali-Ahmad was killed after he was targeted by tear gas in an attack by regime forces on a demonstration in the village. 

Bahraini regime forces continue the deadly crackdown on demonstrations across the country. 

Teenage Ali al-Kassab was killed after he was run over by a police car in the northern village of Abu Saiba on Thursday. 

Regime troops also attacked anti-government demonstrators in the eastern village of Tubli on Saturday. 

Dozens of people have been killed and thousands more have been arrested or fired from their jobs in Bahrain since the beginning of the uprising in February. 

The Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI) issued a report on November 23, saying that the Manama regime had used “excessive force, including the extraction of forced confessions against detainees,” in efforts to crush demonstrations in the country. 

On Thursday, security forces arrested Zainab al-Khawaja, a high-profile Bahraini human rights activist, during a protest in Manama. 

Bahraini anti-regime protesters have expressed their determination to struggle for “the cause of the martyrs of the revolution” despite a decision by King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa to “invite all parties, including those in opposition, to post an adviser in his office to monitor the reconciliation and reform process.”
