manama bahrainBahraini protesters have held a demonstration in the northeastern island of Sitra demanding the withdrawal of Saudi forces from the country.

The demonstrators on Saturday chanted slogans against the presence of the Saudi military in Bahrain.

They also called for an end to the heavy-handed security response by the Bahraini regime forces to peaceful protests.

On March 14, clashes erupted between Bahraini police and anti-regime protesters in several villages. The demonstrators chanted slogans such as “No, no Saudi Occupier” and “Down with [king] Hamad.”

Since mid-February 2011, thousands of pro-democracy protesters have staged demonstrations in the streets of Bahrain, calling for the Al Khalifa royal family to relinquish power.

On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were deployed to assist the Bahraini regime in its crackdown on peaceful protests. According to local sources, scores of people have been killed and hundreds arrested ever since.

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