Bahraini people have taken to the streets to condemn the Al Khalifah regime for hosting an Israeli delegation at a security forum in the Persian Gulf island country.

The demonstrators expressed their strong dissent against the raising of the Israeli flag during the Manama Dialogue Forum, which kicked off on Friday.

The demonstrators once again condemned the ruling Al Khalifah regime for making peace with occupying Israeli regime and reiterated their support for the Palestinian cause.

On September 30, Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid arrived at the Manama airport to become the regime’s highest-ranking official to visit the Persian Gulf country since Israel and Bahrain forged formal relations last year.

Bahraini demonstrators on Friday also denounced the international community’s disregard for the demands of the Bahraini people.

Demonstrations in Bahrain have been held on a regular basis ever since a popular uprising began in mid-February 2011.

The participants demand that the Al Khalifah regime relinquish power and allow a just system representing all Bahrainis to be established.

Manama, however, has gone to great lengths to clamp down on any sign of dissent.

On March 5, 2017, Bahrain’s parliament approved the trial of civilians at military tribunals in a measure blasted by human rights campaigners as being tantamount to the imposition of an undeclared martial law countrywide.

King Hamad ratified the constitutional amendment on April 3, 2017.
