(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - The regime sets check points to prevent citizens from participating in an arranged visit to the 16-year-old martyr Al-Haddad's grave marking the third day since he was killed by the regime forces' bullets last Friday night.
The regime forces besieged Muharraq Island, east of Manama, on Tuesday 21st August, 2012 and set many checkpoints and barricades. They were reported to have deployed heavily in most of Muharraq neighborhoods. The check points are also reported to have caused a terrible traffic jam in one of the most important highways disrupting the peoples' interests.
The regime forces have killed the child Hossam in a very cold-blooded way last Friday evening, on the eve of Eid Al-Fitr, Muslims feast that marks the end of Ramadan. The Martyr was killed by an internationally prohibited weapon that has been used heavily lately against citizens in Bahrain.
Eyewitness reports added that the martyr was abducted from where he was shot in the back by birdshot pellets and was then beaten to death.
Opposition declared a state of mourning for three days during Eid, as flags have been lowered to half-staff in respect of the Martyr Hossam Al-Haddad. Most citizens shared condolences instead of eid greetings and decided to abandon all joyful celebrations.
