AL-Mahrah... Protesters killed by security bullets after protesters protest against creation of security point


A protester was killed and four others injured late Tuesday evening in the eastern province of al-Mahra after security forces fired live bullets at demonstrators who objected to the creation of a security post.

Local residents told Al-Masdar online that a security armored fired at the opposition protesters, killing the protester Nasser Issa Parasio and injuring others.

Residents indicated that the provincial Security Committee was in the process of creating a security point in the area before the tunnels entered the western direction, but demonstrators tried to prevent it on the pretext that it belongs to the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, Al-Mahrah Governor Rajeh Bakrit accused "outlaws of arms and drug traffickers, backed by the putschists and regional countries, of firing at the security spending point to facilitate smuggling from the sea."

Bakrit said in a tweet on Twitter, that they were dealt with resolutely, adding that he would deal with them strictly and all those who think to tamper with the security and stability of the country.

Residents said the situation remained tense between security forces and demonstrators.

In the same vein, the statement of the picket Committee for the Sons of al-Mahra considered the creation of a security point as an unacceptable provocation, considering that the aim is to enable what they called "Saudi military occupation" to exist and impose fait accompli.

"The creation of the point means keeping the province in a dark tunnel and a spiral of violence and chaos," the statement said, adding that the governor and her agent were responsible.

Last week, the Coast Guard and border guards in al-Mahra province announced the opening of the two forces.

Former al-Mahra provincial undersecretary Salem al-Harrizi leads a popular movement in the province against the presence of Saudi forces, and the province has been witnessing protests for several months to leave because there is no need to maintain those forces.
