In Lulu Circle, close to Slamanya, ambulances were barred , Salmanya hospital was besieged and then broken through by riot police, in order to arrest the wounded. Electricity was cut off the Lulu Circle , all surrounding area and Salmanya hospital . Mobile service was cut off all northern region of Bahrain till 10am .

The attcks against Shia residential areas are continuing by riot police and armed militias.

The Bahraini government along with Saudi and Emirates governments are responsible for these massacres .The Saudi-Emirites forces are occupying forces .

We appeal to The Security Council, The UN , The Arab Leauge , the international community , to curb the attackers and to end this massacre. States with leverage to Bahrain government , shoul intervene directly.

Relief agencies such as ICRC , MSF , Arab and international red crescent and cross should intervene to break the siege of hospitals and assaults against medical staff.
