al wefaq armySaudi-backed Bahraini forces have raided the headquarters of the country’s main opposition party, al-Wefaq, in the capital, Manama.
On Wednesday, the regime forces attacked the building located in Manama’s Qufool area at 1:35 p.m. local time (1035

"> GMT), Press TV reported.
This came after al-Wefaq National Islamic Society said that it is going to continue its boycott of a national dialogue over the Al Khalifa regime’s unending crackdown on dissents.
In a statement issued on Sunday, the group said that the recent release of one of its high-ranking officials was not enough to justify a return to the national dialogue.
On October 24, a Bahraini court ordered the release of Khalil al-Marzooq, the deputy secretary-general of al-Wefaq.
On Friday, thousands of people staged a demonstration near the capital Manama, calling for political reforms in the kingdom.
The Bahrainis held the anti-regime protest rally in solidarity with freelance journalist and photographer Hussain Hubail, who has been in Al Khalifa regime’s custody for nearly three months.
Clashes broke out between the protesters and the regime forces during Friday’s demonstration, in which the protesters also called for a democratic transition in the country.
Since mid-February 2011, thousands of pro-democracy protesters have held numerous 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 invaded the country to assist the Bahraini government in its crackdown on peaceful protesters.
According to local sources, scores of people have been killed and hundreds arrested.
Physicians for Human Rights says doctors and nurses have been detained, tortured, or disappeared because they have "evidence of atrocities committed by the authorities, security forces, and riot police" in the crackdown on anti-government protesters.
