Aljazeera documentary exposes Bahrain's support for anti-Iran terrorist groups

The Qatari TV channel Aljazeera has recently broadcast a documentary indicating that Bahrain’s rulers have supported the anti-Iran terrorist group Ansar al-Furqan to conduct terrorist acts inside Iran.

The documentary, titled "Players with Fire," included classified videotape of Hosham Baluchi who was killed in southeastern Iran in 2015, according to IRNA.

Baluchi says in the tape that the Bahraini government had hired him in 2006 to do espionage and other operations in Iran. 

The short video clip also says that Manama had supported another anti-Iran terrorist group, Jondullah as well.

In a part of the videotape, Baluchi said that he was worried that Al Khalifa might decide to eliminate him because of the secrets he knew. 

The documentary also shows Mohammad Saleh, head of Al-Qaeda in Bahrain confessing that the security officials of Bahrain wanted him in 2003 to assassinate the Shia dissidents of the rulers, including Abdulwahhab Hussein.

The report added that Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa had personally wanted Saudi Arabia to release the Al-Qaeda leader of Bahrain who was imprisoned in Saudi Arabia.

The documentary also reveals some documents that show the government of Bahrain have tried to assassinate a number of its dissidents with the help of Al-Qaeda.
