Several protests are reportedly set to take place across the country on Tuesday, August 14. The specific times and locations of the protests, which are not authorized by the government, were not immediately announced. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are expected near protest sites. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.
August 14 is Bahrain's Independence Day as well as the five-year anniversary of Bahrain Tamarod, a series of anti-government protests that were violently dispersed by state security forces.
Individuals in Bahrain are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations due to the risk of violence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
