The Shi'a opposition party Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society has called for nationwide protests and acts of civil disobedience to take place on Friday, April 5. Protesters intend to denounce Israel's participation in the Global Entrepreneurship Congress due to take place from Monday, April 15 to Thursday, April 18, in Bahrain. The exact times and locations of the protests are unknown as of the morning (local time) of Friday. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are expected throughout Bahrain. Security forces are likely to use tear gas and other means of force to disperse demonstrations, which may result in clashes between protesters and security forces.
Individuals in Bahrain are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all gatherings and protests due to potential violence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
