The head of Bahrain's Ja'afari Endowments, Ahmed Hussein, has said that the regime forces attacked 45 holy sites over the past days.

In a letter to Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Hussein said that the troops had demolished 28 mosques.

He added that seven mosques, eight Hussainias and two tombs were also attacked and damaged in the country, IRNA reported on Wednesday.

He expressed hope that the Bahraini regime would take necessary measures to reconstruct the destroyed mosques and compensate for the damage.

The regime has begun destroying mosques as well as houses of some dissidents since dispatch of Saudi Arabia's military forces to the country.

Anti-government protests against the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty in Bahrain began in mid-February.

Since then, the Manama regime has unleashed a massive brutal crackdown on the protesters.

Scores of people have been killed and many more arrested in the Saudi-backed crackdown on peaceful protests in the Persian Gulf state -- a longtime ally of Washington and home to the US Navy's Fifth Fleet.
