In-line with its commitment to combating terrorism and external interference in Bahrain’s internal affairs, security authorities in Bahrain have launched a series of successful counter-terror operations resulting in the arrest of 116 suspected terrorists.
The individuals arrested are suspected of a range of terror crimes, including planning and executing terror attacks as well as manufacturing, storing and transporting explosive devices.
Comprehensive investigations have revealed that the suspected terrorists were members of a network formed and supported by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard (IRGC).
The network was planning to target Bahraini officials, members of the security authorities and vital oil installations, with the objective of disturbing public security and harming the national economy.
As a result of the investigations, security forces were able to disrupt the network’s activities and limit the movements of terrorist operatives.
