The annual report published on Thursday by the Bahrain Forum for Human Rights (BFHR) documented 2,165 cases involving grave abuses throughout the course of last year.
The detailed 535-page report records the most significant spike in violation last May, when Bahraini security forces attacked a peaceful sit-it outside the home of Bahrain’s highest religious authority Sheikh Isa Qassim and killed five people.
By year’s end, there were a total of 1,694 Bahrainis arbitrarily detained.
Security services also carried out 1049 warrantless raids on private residences.
Meanwhile, 1414 anti-regime protests were attacked and 107 injuries recorded due to the excessive use of force by police.
Other findings by the BFHR include hundreds of articles published in state-run newspapers that incite hatred against human rights defenders, political activists, civil society as well as political and religious associations.
