It also called upon HM King Hamad to impose a curfew and deploy the BDG units across Bahrain to protect security and stability, ensure the safety of public and private facilities, constitutional state institutions and preserve national economic and social achievements. The bloc stressed the importance of HM King Hamad’s wise intervention at this critical moment after the opposition parties refused all calls to restore calm and defuse tensions and engage in a multi-party national dialogue."Extremist movements are resorting to escalation and sectarian mobilization which led to an unprecedented disruption of security and hostile sectarian polarization at health and educational institutions", the statement, citing orchestrated acts to disrupt the traffic on Bahrain’s main highways.
