Manama: Bahrain Human Rights Watch Society (BHRWS) yesterday called upon the international community to put pressure on Iran to end that country’s support to terror groups in Bahrain.

“The Iranian regime and the terrorist Revolutionary Guards are responsible for these acts of terror. They’re also responsible for the training, sheltering and financing of terrorism against Bahrain,” BHRWS said, referring to the arrest of suspects involved in the terrorist attack on the Bahrain-Saudi pipeline in Buri last November.

The human rights society demanded the international community to “bear its responsibilities, combat the Iranian regime and impose strict sanctions on it”.
