Saudi-backed Bahraini forces have attacked anti-government protesters in several cities as demonstrators took to the streets to mark the “Day of Sacred Defense.”

Regime forces and pro-government thugs fired tear gas and live ammunition on protesters in the villages of Daih, Ma'ameer and a village near Sitra.

Witnesses say regime forces are firing on homes and private properties and gunshots can be heard from different parts of the villages.

In Diah, Bahraini troops have reportedly used a fearsome Apache helicopter gunship, designed to destroy tanks on a battlefield, to disperse protesters.

Activists of Bahrain's 14th of February revolutionary movement have urged Bahrainis to fight back if they are attacked by regime forces on the "Day of Sacred Defense."

So far, there have been no reports of clashes between anti-regime protesters and security forces.

Bahraini protesters demand an end to the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty.

Since the beginning of protests in Bahrain in mid-February, Manama showed itself capable of great brutality in suppressing anti-regime protesters.

Scores of protesters have been killed and many others have been arrested during Manama's violent crackdown on protesters.

Regime forces have also raided dozens of mosques, schools, sacred sites and even graves in persisting efforts to suppress all opposition.
