Iran general warns Bahrain over move against Shiite cleric

Leading Iranian General Qassem Suleimani warned Bahrain that its decision to strip the Gulf state's Shiite spiritual leader of his citizenship will fan armed rebellion in the Shiite-majority kingdomA leading Iranian general has warned Bahrain it is fanning armed rebellion and “will pay the price” after a crackdown on its Shiite majority saw the community’s spiritual leader stripped of his nationality. The warning from General Qassem Suleimani, head of the elite Revolutionary Guards’ overseas operations arm, the Quds Force, came after Washington too strongly criticised the move by its Gulf Arab ally. “Surely they know that the aggression against Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim is a red line… that will leave no option for the people but to resort to armed resistance,” Suleimani told state media late on Monday.
