On Tuesday, the interior ministry announced that a security operation had begun in Diraz to maintain order and remove violations punishable under law that hinder the movement of citizens.

A protester has been killed in a raid by Bahraini police on a sit-in near the home of the Kingdom’s most prominent Shia cleric, activists say. Witnesses said officers had opened fire as they moved into the village of Diraz, where Sheikh Isa Qassim lives. They added that the raid triggered clashes with officers throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at demonstrators.

UK based Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy (BIRD) identified the fallen activist as Mohammed Khadim Zain al-Din. Bahrain Mirror reported that Mr Zain al-Din had suffered gunshot wounds and posted a photograph showing the body of a man covered in blood.
