Bahrain: Terror Blast Injures 5 Policemen

  • Bahrain

Five policemen were injured in a terror blast while securing Ashoora procession on Budaiya Highway in Daih, while no one claimed the responsibility for it.

The bombing targeted forces securing the participants in Ashoora procession, and as soon the occasion was over, a bomb on the side of the road remotely exploded, a source informed Asharq Al-Awsat.



The source also stated that the occasion was used by Iranian officials who called for illegal processions and walks in Daih, Duraz, and other villages.

Hezbollah’s secretary general Hasan Nasrallah delivered a speech instigating against the kingdom of Bahrain and described the Bahraini people as the oppressed people living in a prison.

Ministry of Interior announced that five policemen were injured in a terror blast while securing Ashoora procession on Budaiya Highway in Daih.

The ministry reiterated on its official Twitter account that the necessary steps are being taken.

In 2014, a terrorist explosion occurred in Daih killing an Emirati officer and two Bahraini policemen after a bomb exploded on the side of the road.

Capital Governor Hisham bin Abdulrahman Al Khalifa condemned the terror blast that injured five policemen, expressing full confidence in the capability of the security authorities to reveal the circumstances of the terror crime and those behind it to bring them to justice.
The governor asserted that this terror blast didn’t respect the holiness of the month of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic Calendar.

The governor said that the terror blast was condemned by all conventions, legislation, developed countries and international organizations.

A Saudi official source at the Foreign Ministry condemned the terrorist bombing which injured several policemen in the Bahraini capital of Manama.

The source confirmed the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s support for the Kingdom of Bahrain against these acts of terrorism aimed at destabilizing its security and stability and intimidating its people.

General Secretariat of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) expressed strong condemnation of the terrorist bombing which took place on Monday. The attack targeted security forces while carrying out their duties, resulting in injuries among them.

OIC Secretary-General Yousef al-Othaimeen expressed solidarity with the government of Bahrain in its response to all acts of terrorism aimed at destabilizing its security and stability, terrorizing innocent civilians and damaging public property.



Othaimeen emphasized the organization’s principled and firm position, which strongly condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
