On December 24, BCHR headlined, "Bahrain: Escalating state violence against peaceful protesters in lack of international accountability and using western arms."

BCHR expressed grave concern about about ruthless state terror. It documents those affected. It discusses injuries from rubber bullets, shotgun pellets, tear gas, toxic chemicals, sound grenades, beatings, and live fire.

Injured victims avoid public hospitals. They're militarized. Arrival for treatment risks arrest and imprisonment.

Collaboratively with doctors, BCHR discussed recent examples of injuries sustained. It did so "to present the most thorough and accurate description" of serious human rights violations.

On December 16, King Hamad called Bahrain "a country of law and freedom." Repression is official policy. On December 17, BCHR's acting vice president, Sayed Yousi, said authorities made 27 arbitrary arrests.

Mass protests occurred. Bahrain's Martyrs Day was commemorated. Excessive force was used. Numerous injuries followed. 

A one kg tear gas canister struck a young woman. She sustained a three-bone foot fracture. Urgent treatment was needed.

She feared arrest. Doctors operated on her at an undisclosed location. Her prognosis is poor. She's expected to endure long-term pain. Her foot will remain deformed.
