Security forces apprehend convicted terrorists in targeted security operation

MOI:

Bahrain’s Ministry of Interior yesterday undertook a targeted security operation in Diraz. Security forces were operating on intelligence which confirmed that terrorist organisations within Diraz had abducted and tortured innocent civilians accused of cooperating with the authorities, resulting in the death of one individual. Security patrols have been shot at on four separate occasions in a serious escalation of violence that points towards the influence of external forces seeking to incite violence against the Kingdom. 

 The objective of the operation was to ensure the safety of local residents, following reports from members of the public of widespread intimidation by terrorists in the area. In the most serious instances, members of the community have been kidnapped and tortured for reporting crimes or attempting to remove illegal barricades.

48 hours prior to the operation, the Ministry of Interior engaged with community leaders in an attempt to communicate with those responsible in order to resolve the situation peacefully.

 

Security forces – whilst removing an illegal roadblock in the area – came under direct attack by a large number of assailants using firebombs, knives and axes. The assailants used illegal roadblocks to protect themselves.

 

The attack resulted in severe injuries to 31 officers, with a number currently in critical condition. Five individuals who formed part of the group that attacked police officers have been confirmed as deceased and eight had to be transferred to hospital for immediate medical care. Those that sustained injuries were also treated by medical staff on-site.

 

An immediate government investigation has been launched into the causes of the deaths and the Kingdom’s independent investigatory institutions – including the Public Prosecution – will have full access to all evidence it deems necessary.

 

The deceased have been confirmed as:

 

·         Mohammed Ali Ibrahim Ahmed 28 years

·         Mohammed Kadhem Mohsen Ali Nasser 44 years

·         Ahmad Jamil Ahmed Mohammed Al-Asfour, 34 years

·         Mohammed Ahmed Hassan Mohammed Hamdan 22 years

·         Identity currently unknown

 

Security forces arrested 286 individuals over the course of the operation, with a number of the assailants arrested at the house of Isa Qassim located in the same area. Those arrested included escapees from Jau Prison, convicted terrorists and felons, and individuals currently under investigation by the courts. Many were linked to current cases involving assaults on security personnel, attempted murder, possession of improvised explosive devices and attempts to carry out terrorist activity.

Security forces remain deployed in the area to ensure the safety of civilians. All citizens or witnesses have been urged to come forward with any information relating to illegal firearms or dangerous substances that could be used in future terrorist acts.

 

The Ministry of the Interior has emphasised that measures taken over the course of the operation were necessary to secure the safety and security of local residents and those citizens directly affected by the actions of terrorist groups. The Ministry will continue to enforce the law as part of its commitment to safeguarding the security of the Kingdom and maintaining public order.
