Yemen’s Ansarullah Denounces Execution of 3 Activists in Bahrain
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement condemned the Bahraini regime’s recent execution of three young activists, reiterating its support for the oppressed nation of the Persian Gulf country.
In a statement on Monday, Ansarullah movement’s Political Council described the executions as a “heinous crime” committed by the ruling Al Khalifa regime.
“The brutal regime of Bahrain has adopted the policy of killing and torture against its people,” it said, noting that the Manama regime is killing its people with the backing of the Saudi regime and arrogant powers.
Ansarullah further expressed its full support for the people of Bahrain and called on Muslim and Arab countries and international human rights organizations to slam the Al Khalifa regime’s ongoing atrocities against the oppressed Bahraini nation.
In a similar statement on Sunday, the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, condemned the execution of the activists, saying, “Many international organizations consider what happened to be extrajudicial killing”.
On Sunday, the Al Khalifa regime executed the anti-regime activists over their alleged role in a 2014 bomb attack, amid widespread public anger against the death verdicts.
On January 9, Bahrain’s Court of Cassation upheld the death penalties given to Sami Mushaima, Abbas Jamil Tahir al-Sami’ and Ali Abdulshahid al-Singace over allegations of killing a member of Emirati forces who had been assisting Manama in its suppression of Bahraini protesters in the northern village of al-Daih back in March 2014. Seven other convicts have also been sentenced to life in prison in the case.
