Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

MANAMA—Bahrain’s de­ci­sion to strip a Shi­ite preacher of his ci­ti­zen­ship will create “a flame of fire” in the King­dom and the re­gion, a top Ira­nian gen­eral said late Mon­day ac­cord­ing to state me­dia.

The state­ment equated preacher Isa Qas­sim a “red line” and said that its cross­ing “will create a flame of fire in Bahrain and through­out the re­gion that will leave no op­tion for the peo­ple but to re­sort to armed re­sis­tance,” said Gen­eral Qassem Suleimani, head of Iran’s Quds Force, the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Guards’ for­eign op­er­a­tions arm. Gen­eral Suleimani is in­fa­mous for over­see­ing and plot­ting a large num­ber of ter­ror­ist groups and ac­tiv­i­ties in Syria and Iraq.— Agen­cies
