The Bahraini regime has imported poisonous teargas grenades form the United States to use against anti-government protesters in the tiny Persian Gulf sheikhdom.

The Arabic language Al-Alam news channel reported on Tuesday that it has obtained a video footage showing that the poisonous teargas grenades used by Bahraini security forces against demonstrators were supplied by the Americans.

The news channel, however, did not elaborate further on the information.

Last week, 14-year-old Ali Jawad was killed following Eid al-Fitr prayers when Saudi-backed Bahraini forces shot him directly in the face by a tear gas canister at close range in the southern city of Sitra.

Meanwhile, many Bahrainis went on hunger strike to voice their solidarities with a number of doctors and nurses arrested for treating injured anti-government demonstrators.

The doctors and nurses themselves went on hunger strike to protest their prosecution by a military tribunal.

Massive protests broke out in Bahrain in February with people taking to the streets and calling for a constitutional monarchy — a demand that later turned into calls for the ouster of the monarchy.

Scores of protesters have been killed — many under torture — and numerous others have been detained and transferred to unknown locations during the regime’s crackdown.
