“It was difficult for arrogant powers to accept their historical failure in the Middle East. So, they announced their readiness to launch a military attack on Libya to intimidate people and control the region,” said the Deputy Chair of Iran's Majlis (parliament) Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy Hossein Ebrahimi on Saturday.

He added that the ongoing developments in the region led arrogant powers to realize their “heavy defeat.”

The Iranian lawmaker stressed the importance of forging unity among Muslims in the region and urged Muslim nations to be cautious about current regional events.

“Muslim nations in the region are intolerant of the continuation of the massacre of the Bahraini people,” Ebrahimi said, cautioning that a lack of unity among Muslims may prepare the ground for foreign powers to dominate the region.

Foreign troops backed by Saudi Arabia have launched military operations on Bahraini civilian population after Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa declared a martial law on Wednesday.

More than 12 people have been killed and about 1,000 injured since the start of the anti-government protests in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom in mid-February.

Bahrain has been the scene of anti-government demonstrations by thousands of protesters, calling for an overthrow of the regime in the Persian Gulf country.

Demonstrators in the Shia-majority country have been demanding the ouster of the 230-year-old Sunni-led monarchy as well as constitutional reforms, with hundreds camping out peacefully in the capital's Pearl Square since February 14th.

Soldiers from the United Arab Emirates also arrived in the crisis-hit Bahrain on Friday to join Saudi Arabian troops that were already deployed in the country earlier this week in an effort to help the Bahraini crackdown on anti-government protests that have, so far, left several people dead.
