It has turned out that British commandos have been giving sniper rifle training to Bahraini armed forces.
According to an exclusive article by British newspaper The Independent, elite troops from the Royal Navy’s 43 Commando Fleet Protection Group are running training courses for Bahraini personnel. The most recent training was conducted in January. Britain has been a staunch ally of the Persian Gulf monarchy. Since 2011, the UK has approved more than 45 million pounds worth of arms sales to Manama. Human rights groups have slammed London for its support for the Al Khalifa regime. Manama has been suppressing dissent since the beginning of a popular uprising in 2011, killing scores of anti-regime protesters.
