Saudi-backed Bahraini forces have attacked protesters who took part in demonstrations to call for the downfall of the regime in several locations across the kingdom.

The protesters came under attack in the northeastern island of Sitra on Monday, when they were mourning the death of a woman, who was recently killed by regime forces in the village of Abu Saiba.

The 35-year-old woman, named Aminah al-Sayyed Mahdi, died on Friday, a month after inhaling poisonous tear gas fired by regime forces at anti-regime protesters in the village.

Similar demonstrations were also held in the day in several villages, with people taking to the streets to condemn the ongoing crackdown by regime forces.

The protesters also demanded the immediate release of political prisoners.
