Bahrainis have staged yet another demonstration, this time under the banner of 'Popular Anger,' against the Saudi-backed Al Khalifa regime.

Friday's anti-regime demonstration comes despite an intensified onslaught, Press TV reported.

Saudi-backed forces in Bahrain have reportedly become more brutal in their crackdown on protester as the Persian Gulf country witnessed one of its larger anti-regime demonstrations since mid-February. Calls had gone out on various social media websites for a larger gathering.

Reports say that regime forces have fired tear gas at anti-state demonstrators in the capital Manama.

Bahrainis have been waging protest rallies since mid-February, demanding an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty, which has ruled the country for over 40 years.

Scores of people have been killed and hundreds more arrested in a brutal crackdown on peaceful protesters in Bahrain, home to a huge American military installation for the US Navy's Fifth Fleet in the Persian Gulf.

In March, a number of Persian Gulf Arab states, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, deployed military forces to Bahrain in an attempt to assist the Manama regime's crackdown on peaceful protesters.

Moreover, the regime has also sacked hundreds of public sector employees for supporting the protesters.

The Bahraini regime announced last week that it will terminate 23 medical staff member for providing medical treatment to injured protesters.
