MP: Bahrain Invasion US-Saudi Crime

“…Unfortunately, some forces from Saudi Arabia entered Bahrain and the US-Saudi move is the most criminal act done jointly,” the spokesman for the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran's Parliament (Majlis) said on Monday.

“This crime of Saudi Arabia and the US has been recorded in history also as a great betrayal of Bahraini rulers,” Jalali added.

The Iranian lawmaker made a reference to US Defense Secretary Robert Gates' recent trip to Bahrain, and said that all the schemes to crack down on anti-government protesters in the Persian Gulf state were designed during this trip.

Gates made an unannounced visit to crisis-hit Bahrain on March 12.

Jalali also urged the Saudi regime to stop meddling in Bahrain's affairs and to refrain from carrying out the US plots.

On Monday, a Saudi official said that more than 1,000 troops, part of the Persian Gulf countries' Peninsula Shield Force, had entered Bahrain, aiming to quell the escalating anti-government protests at the request of the Bahraini government.

Bahrain's government is continuing its military crackdown on anti-government protesters that demand the downfall of decades-long regime of al-Khalifa family.

Several people have lost their lives and hundreds of others have sustained injuries following the Bahraini government's violent crackdown on demonstrators.

On Tuesday, six people died and more than 1,000 others were injured in clashes between anti-regime protesters and Bahrain's security forces.
