Saudi Crackdown: 6 Martyred, Several Wounded in Heavy Attack against Awamia
Three citizens were martyred in Shia-populated Awamia as Saudi so-called security forces heavily fired the town using all kinds of weapons, vehicles and heavy artillery.
According to information coming from the Saudi inside, Mohsen al-Lajami, Mohammed al-Faraj and Hussein Abu Abdallah, in addition to three other residents were martyred, while the Saudi forces arbitrarily detained more than ten others.
In this regard, member of the European Saudi Organization for Human Rights, Adel al-Said, reported that "the number of the victims of military escalation inside Awamia has hit 6, including three nationals (one of which his body was burned) and three other residents."
The escalation of targeting Awamia, which has been besieged since more than 70 days, was accompanied with an inclusive curfew inside the town and the neighboring areas.
Awamia woke up on Wednesday to the heavy military campaign by Saudi regime forces during which military vehicles, destroyers and heavy artillery bombed almost all the area, besieging all of Awamia's entrances and exits. All of this takes places as part of the alleged pretext of ‘developing' the heritage site of Awamia, which is still populated indeed by the town's residents.
The military armored vehicles deployed to all entrances of the besieged Awamia started bombing the neighborhoods randomly, backed by Special Security Forces that have been stationed in the place weeks earlier.
The developments came as dozens of Shia activists are feared to face execution by the Saudi regime at any moment.
