Heavy security presence outside Sheikh Isa Qassim’s house marking 100 days of his house arrest

The security authorities continued their heavy security presence outside the house of spiritual leader of Shia majority Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim marking 100 days of his house arrest.

Activists posted photos on social media outlets on Wednesday (August 30, 2017) showing at least two armored vehicles outside Sheikh Isa Qassim’s house.

The authorities forcibly dispersed Diraz protest on May 23, 2017 which left 5 killed, dozens injured and about 300 arrested. They then put Sheikh Qassim under house arrest and continued their siege on the village.
