As Al-Khalifa regime continues to brutally attack the Bahraini civilians, a human rights monitoring group revealed that more than 59 houses were stormed and 42 activists were detained across the tiny Gulf kingdom in June.

The Rasad Bahrain group said the raids were carried out in the villages of Buri, al-Dair, Samaheej, Barbar, Diraz, al-Daih, Karrana, Sanabis, Sitra Island, Juffair, Ma'ameer, Nuwaidrat, Abu Saiba, Shakhura, Saar, Nabih Saleh, A'ali, Shahrakan, Bani Jamra, Karzakan, Eker and Malkiya.

It added that regime forces also set up checkpoints in numerous areas and on streets as part of Al-Khalifah’s continued crackdown on people.

Meanwhile, the Bahrain Center for Human Rights [BCHR] has revealed that authorities at the notorious Jaw prison have prevented some 80 political inmates from contacting their families.

Thousands of anti-regime protesters have held demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular uprising began in the country in mid-February 2011.

Bahrain’s Supreme Court of Appeal has sentenced three anti-regime dissidents to life imprisonment and jail terms.
They are demanding that the Al-Khalifah dynasty relinquish power and allow a just system representing all Bahrainis to be established.

Manama has gone to great lengths to clamp down on any sign of dissent. On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were deployed to assist Bahrain in its crackdown.
