Dubai Deputy Police Chief Says Hizbullah Trained Bahraini Bomb Attacker, Party Denies

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Dubai's police chief Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan slammed on Tuesday the Islamic Republic of Iran and its ally Hizbullah a day after a bomb explosion in Bahrain killed three policemen, including an Emirati.

However, Hizbullah “categorically” denied Khalfan's allegation, saying in a statement issued in the evening that “this claim is totally unfounded.”

“The suspect, who planted the bomb, has visited Lebanon and was trained by Hizbullah on carrying out bombings,” Khalfan said via his Twitter account.

“The suspect who is involved in assassinating Emirati First Lieutenant Tariq al-Shehi doesn't reside in an area far from the site of the explosion.”

On Monday, "three police personnel died in a terror blast in (the Shiite-populated village) Daih while police were dispersing rioters," Bahrain's interior ministry said on Twitter.

And the interior ministry in the United Arab Emirates said an officer from its police force was among the dead.

Shehi, who was part of a force established as part of common Gulf security pact, died along with two members of the Bahraini police force "while performing his national duty of maintaining order," said the UAE interior ministry.

He is the first Gulf officer reported to have been killed since forces from the region rolled into Bahrain in March 2011 to boost the kingdom's security forces, which later quelled the month-long uprising.

Bahrain has always maintained the Gulf force did not take part in confrontations with protesters and have been deployed to protect vital installations.

Khalfan also considered in a tweet that the Iranian-backed Bahraini opposition “became an enemy of the Gulf states and a close fried of Persians.”

He pointed out that “an addition 1,000 Emirati policeman should be sent to Bahrain so that the enemies of the Arab Gulf understand that security in Bahrain involves us all.”

The Shiite-dominated opposition swiftly condemned Monday's bombing, stressing any political demands had to be voiced in a "peaceful" manner.

Clashes frequently erupt near Manama between security forces and Shiite protesters demanding the Sunni ruling Al-Khalifa dynasty surrender its grip on all key cabinet posts in favor of an elected government.

The explosion, on the outskirts of the Bahraini capital, is the most serious attack on the security forces in terms of casualties since the Shiite majority led an Arab Spring-inspired uprising in February 2011 against the Al-Khalifas.

terrorists and criminals wherever they are and wherever they go. This peaceful revolution in Bahrain is as fake as this glorious resistance in Lebanon.

looooooolthe sponsors of hundreds of terrorist attacks in syria and lebanon and now crying wolf? super credible, i bet they have as much evidence to back teir claims as the STL does.

Thumb FlameCatcher 04 March 2014, 12:23

This does not change the fact that Hezbollah is an terrorist group committing attrocities well beyond our borders.

They are NOT a LEBANESE resistance as they claim ! They are the scum of the earth hijacking our country and turning it into a no-mans land for them to conduct all their criminal and terrorist activities without being held accountable.

The protests in bahrain were peaceful for the first 2 years at least, with 80 protestors shot dead. Their demand isn' even much, just a CONSTITUTIONAL ---MONARCHE---. Goes to show how unreasonable and evil the tyrant is.

where's the proof?? Indict people through a tweet?? That's judicial!! way to go!! to quote the police chief, they're dealing with a SUSPECT!!! One's innocent till proven guilty, at least in the civilized world.. Wait for the results of the investigation.

And I should take his tweet as truth because...?

Besides, if he came to lebanin there are hundreds of groups that cab teach him how to make bombs. And bombing a shiite protest rules out ha automatically.

Thumb .mowaten. 04 March 2014, 14:28

you take it for truth if you already hate HA enough to take any accusation as truth.

everybody knows that bahraini terrorists have been trained for ages in the bekaa valley. And the kurdish, and the armenians, and the houthis, and all other iranian proxies...

no, everybody doesnt "know" that, what everybody knows is that you're an idiot and ridiculously untrustworthy propagandist.

My dear shia brother mowaten: It is normal to be frustrated by the events in Syria leading to huge losses for the resistance, but that should be no excuse for your erratic behavior here today. It is not my fault or other posters' fault for your marital and family problems. Bear in mind this is a news/political site and not a family counseling session. Please, keep your personal problems to yourself and protect your privacy. Thank you

This is a sad result of the U.S. imposed restraint on the Bahrain authorities in dealing with these Iran controlled terrorists. Bahrain sees the subversion of Iran up close and personal every day as Hezbollah pays school kids to firebomb schools; block traffic with burning tires and throw stones at cars trying to get around the blockades. The adult thugs explode gas cylinders in villages, bulldoze houses of decent working Shia to intimidate the majority, while Hezbollah trained terrorists rig IED's to kill policemen and destroy Bahrain's economy.

Iran sponsored sedition which the U.S. refuses to recognize is a daily fact of life in Bahrain; and is being used to take control of the Arabian Gulf countries.

mowaten with points before and after his name: Please, refrain from using foul and offensive language on this forum. It is very disheartening to come here to read the news about our country and our resistance only to find the forum filled with your insults. I used to hold you in high regard, but you leave me no option but to feel dismay and disgust at your online behavior. I am not going to vote you down in the hope my action will act as an incentive for you to improve and grow. Thank you

the american shill rushing to defend his israeli counterpart. how lovely.
i the mean time, i note that both of you got a sore behind from HA, must explain the obsession and playing tough on internet.

Again, if the gulf enjoys funding terrorist groups, this does not grant Hezbollah the excuse to do the same.

In the end, Hezbollah always was and remains a terrorist group whether you like it or not ! Their crimes span the globe well beyond the arab world.

It's time to put this rabid dog to sleep !

you're the rabid dog, barking insanities and baseless accusations out of hatred.

HA's ideology is based on lying to its own people and everyone else. Keeping their secrecy is crucial to conducting their actions.

And I don't need to show you proof. It's all over for you to see. Just take your head out of the ground.

And about denial : HA denied their partner Samaha smuggled bombs... until they could no longer do so.

They are liars. Hassan Nasrallah lies to you on TV all the time... stop it already...

as i said, you talk a lot, but never answer the point:
show us proof. all you have is enemies of HA accusing it for everything, from bad weather to kennedy's assassination, without having ever provided anything credible.
