JUST IN: #BNNBahrain Reports.

Bahrain held parliamentary and local elections on Saturday, just hours after hackers targeted the island kingdom's government websites. #Bahrain #elections
“Websites are being targeted to hinder the elections and circulate negative messages in desperate attempts that won’t affect the determination of citizens who will go to the polling stations,” the Interior Ministry said.
Screenshots taken by internet users showed a picture after the hack claiming it was carried out by a previously unknown account called Al-Toufan, or “The Flood” in Arabic.

"#Iran is threatening the other countries as much as it is threatening the State of #Israel" Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz tells #AspenSecurity

"Iran is a global challenge. You can see it in #Venezeula. You can see it in South #Africa, in South America... #Nigeria"
#Israel-#Ukraine - "Israel is definitely on the Western side. Israel is definitely on the #Ukrainian side" per DefMin Gantz

"We are supporting it in all the diplomatic measures. We are supporting it w/all the humanitarian aid...We have opened a field hospital"
Why not more for #Ukraine? "We do have our operational considerations" per #Israel's Gantz

"We are sharing an aerial border w/the #Russia|ns above #Syria ... so we have other calculus that we have to take into mind"

Significant statement from caretaker PM @yairlapid: "Two-state solution is a strong guarantee for a democratic state of #Israel with a #Jewish majority."
Interesting moment during the @JoeBiden-@yairlapid presser in #Jerusalem when #Saudi news outlet @AlArabiya correspondent asked @POTUS what the #US is offering #Gulf states on #Iran's malign activity in region, and Lapid on where #Israel disagreed with Washington on Iran policy.

Dozens of Israeli businessmen travelled to #SaudiArabia w/ Israeli passports. Saudi - #Israel cooperation is not only economic but also covers security and intelligence levels. It is about time to stop hiding this ambiguity and long-term relationship and Saudi support to Israel.
#SaudiArabia allowed #Israel/i airlines to use its airspace for flights to and from the #UAE and #Bahrain. But Israel has not yet received such access for flights to #India, #Thailand and #China, which as a result are significantly longer than they need be.
In late 2020, former PM Benjamin Netanyahu, ex-Mossad chief Yossi Cohen, and then-US secretary of state Mike Pompeo visited the city of Neom to meet with the crown prince Mohamad Bin Salman, in the first known high-level meeting between an Israeli and a Saudi leader.

On this night, 11 years ago I saw my father put a shirt on top of the one he was wearing. and i realized, an extra layer of clothes was the only protection he had against the torturers coming to get him #Bahrain
On this night, 11 years ago my father called us all in the living room, we knew they were coming, we had all changed and we listened to him speaking calmly. He wanted us to be strong, and patient #Bahrain

#Chinese Foreign Ministry gives very interesting details from #China FM Wang call with #Israel FM @yairlapid. Thread: As far as I remember, this is 1st time China praises the #AbrahamAccords, if without naming them. Wang Yi says "China is pleased to see Israel establishing 1/9
and developing normal ties with countries in the region, which is part of the reconciliation in the broader #MiddleEast 中方乐见以方同地区国家建立并发展正常友好关系,这应是中东整体和解的组成部分." So far, China has been was quiet re Israel's closer ties with #UAE, #Bahrain 2/9
despite its professed support for stability. Wang repeats China's stance re Israel ties with #Palestinians, says supports resuming talks on #two #state solution, repeats China's offer to facilitate direct negotiations between Israel and Palestinians. China had already hosted 3/9

Urgent thread:
We’re very worried about my father who called this morning and said he won’t be allowed to make anymore calls, and was chanting Free #Bahrain, Free #Palestine, and down with israels collaborators - they kept cutting the call and he kept trying to call back.
Yesterday during his call he named people who took part in and/or were responsible for his torture, and we’re worried about the retaliation against him - more so than what they’re already doing as I’ll mention in the following tweets
Due to my father’s chants in Feb about #Palestine, all treatment for the damage done by #torture he endured has stopped, as well as all access to medical appointments - some were urgent as he may be going blind in his right eye due to glaucoma, which is progressive & irreversible

There's a developing big story that will also bring in the relationship between the #UK and #Bahrain; whether the former is willing to extradite to an oppressive torturing regime - tricky for the UK cuz also involves the monarch's son..
Let's start with the background: a thread
Dr. Sharifa Swar is a psychotherapist who a couple of years ago went public to expose the spread of the use of the Lyrica drug in a middle school in #Bahrain. She talked about how there were high officials involved and called for an investigation
This was also tied into sex trafficking. She exposed this based on conversations she was having with young girls, who were threatened by those selling the drug in the schools. She was summoned and she asked that the minister of interior be present so she can show him the evidence
