    Now just a couple of things to bare in mind before reading this;
    1] Bahrain is majority Shia but oppresively ruled by a Sunni monarchy that kowtows to Saudi
    2] They have a long and ignominious history of persecuting, torturing and killing these shias
    3] Iran is the typical scape goat for this 'Saudi province'

    Now whether or not these allegations are true or just the usual fib made up by the security services its hard to know but what I can say with absolute certainty is if it is true that these people were trying to tear down the state - bloody good show to them. The Bahrain 'government' are run by an oppressive authoritarian dictator [who happens to be one of Britains close friends - go figure]


    Thoughts on this?

    In-line with its commitment to combatting terrorism and external interference in Bahrain’s internal affairs, the security authorities have launched a series of successful counter-terror operations resulting in the arrest of 116 suspected terrorists.
    The individuals arrested are suspected of a range of terror crimes, including planning and executing terror attacks as well as manufacturing, storing and transporting explosive devices.IRGC supported terrorist network

    Comprehensive investigations have revealed that the suspected terrorists were members of a network formed and supported by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard (IRGC). The network was planning to target Bahraini officials, members of the security authorities and vital oil installations, with the objective of disturbing public security and harming the national economy. As a result of the investigations, security forces were able to disrupt the network’s activities and limit the movements of terrorist operatives.By providing material, recruitment and training support to terrorists, the IRGC and its affiliates, including the Asaib Ahl al-Haq (League of Righteous People) in Iraq and Hezbollah in Lebanon, are directly responsible for the intensification of terrorist activity in Bahrain. The investigations revealed that terror cells within the network were operating under the supervision of IRGC-affiliated groups and fugitive terrorist leaders in Iran, Iraq and Lebanon.The main terrorist leaders include Aqeel Al Sari, Murtadha Al Sindi and Qassim Al Muamen. All are responsible for recruiting terrorists in Bahrain, arranging firearms and explosives training for terrorists, establishing secret warehouses and hideouts, and supplying terrorist groups with funding, firearms and explosives to carry out attacks.





















    Terrorist training locations

    The investigation also revealed that 48 of the 116 suspected terrorists arrested had received training at IRGC facilities in Iran and their affiliated locations in Iraq and Lebanon.The terrorist groups within the network were responsible for the following:• Organizing warehouses to store weapons and explosives• Monitoring potential locations for terrorist attacks• Transporting and distributing cash and explosives• Manufacturing explosives• Executing terrorist attacksThe investigations also led to the discovery of a number of sites used to manufacture and store explosives intended to be used for terrorist attacks. The crime scene team classified the seized items, including:• More than 757kg of urea nitrate• Kalashnikovs, pistols, ammunition and detonators• Magnetic bombs and grenades• Anti-personnel explosives as well as devices which can pierce armoured vehicles• Vehicles used for transporting explosives• Four fragmentation bombs which can be launched through an RPG and used to destroy light armored vehicles. An examination by the forensic lab showed that three of the bombs matched the specifications of the PG7 manufactured by the Iranian ordnance factoriesThe General Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Science has referred the case to the Public Prosecutor.
