Back on February 13, Bahrain vowed to use tougher anti-protest methods to prevent the people of the tiny kingdom from demanding government reform.
All substances currently being used in Bahrain to disperse what the state deems rioters are internationally approved, military courts director Major Humood Saad told parliament at the time. “He said that they were natural substances and that banning police from using them during riots, would mean that they would have to use more potentially lethal and stronger methods, such as rubber bullets,” Bahraini TV reported.
MP Dr Aziz Abul said that Bahraini law bans the country from using chemical warfare against enemies, “but allows police to use it against the people.”
Doctors confirmed the Bahraini state is in fact using “potentially lethal and stronger methods” in order to put down calls for a more representative government.
