MP: Bahrain Cannot Reject Iran's Humanitarian Aids

"We send humanitarian aids to the Bahraini nation and not to the ruling system in the country," Deputy Head of the parliament's Human Rights Commission Mohammad Karim Abedi told FNA on Sunday, adding, "The current puppet rulers of the country do not have the authority to reject Iran's humanitarian aids to the Bahraini nation."

He stated that based on reliable news and information, Bahraini people are in dire need of medication and medical aids as well as other basic commodities, "and we, as a Muslim country and Bahrain's neighbor, cannot be indifferent to the basic needs of the Bahraini people".

Earlier this month, Iranian Ambassador to Beirut Qazanfar Roknabadi in a meeting with Doctors Without Borders' Head of Mission in Lebanon Fabio Forgione had announced Tehran's preparedness to supply the necessary drugs and medical aids to the Bahraini people injured during the recent protests in the country.

Last week, horrifying evidence shed light on brutality of the Bahraini regime's crackdown on medical staff.

Harrowing testimony of torture, intimidation and humiliation from a doctor arrested in the crackdown on medical staff in Bahrain has revealed the lengths to which the regime's security forces are prepared to go to quash pro-democracy protests.

Interviews obtained by The Independent from inside Bahrain tell of ransacked hospitals and of terrified medical staff beaten, interrogated and forced into signing false confessions. Many have been detained, their fate unknown.

Anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February, calling for an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty's over-40-year rule.

Violence against the defenseless people escalated after a Saudi-led conglomerate of police, security and military forces from the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) member states - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar - were dispatched to the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom on March 13 to help Manama crack down on peaceful protestors.

Yet, protests and rallies continued throughout the country in defiance of the martial law put in place by Manama since last month.

During the recent days, Bahrainis repeated their demand for the ouster of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and condemned Riyadh's involvement in the suppression of the revolution.

People have announced that they will continue protests until the regime collapses.
