The protestors held rallies in 7 different parts of Qatif on Wednesday night, holding placards in support of the recently executed Sheikh Nimr Al-Nimr, while chanting slogans against the corrupt Saudi officials responsible for his execution, FNA reported.
Their chants and slogans underlined the corruption of the Saudi judiciary system and the country’s politicians.
The people in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern province have been holding continued demonstrations since the interior ministry announced on Saturday that it had executed 47 people, including Sheikh Nimr.
The rallies were held after hundreds of Saudi soldiers and security forces raided civilian homes in the city of Qatif on Tuesday, assaulting and arresting residents for protesting against the regime.
The Saudi troops ransacked buildings and caused heavy damage to several neighborhoods after they indiscriminately fired on civilians in Qatif.
On Monday, the Saudi police killed a young man and injured an eight-year-old boy during a demonstration in the Qatif region.
Saudi national, Ali Omran al-Dawood, was reportedly killed when the Saudi police started shooting at the protesters inside the village of Awamiyah in Qatif region.
An eight-year-old boy was also injured during the police shootout.
Large groups of protesters were also beaten and arrested as security forces surrounded a group of young Saudis who were burning tires in protest at Sheikh Nimr’s execution.
