Saudi regime forces have shot dead a two-and-a-half year old child and a young man in the village of Awamiyah in the eastern Shia-majority Qatif region.
Al-Ahed news website reported on Friday that the child, identified as Jawad al-Dagher, was killed on Thursday night while he was moving with his family near Awamiyah in Eastern Province.
It added that the child’s mother was also critically injured.
The report said a young man, identified as Ali Mohammad Kazim, was also shot dead at the hands of the Saudi forces in Awamiyah on Friday.
The news website reported that the troops fired rocket-propelled grenades at al-Sayed Mohammad mosque in Awamiyah's al-Masoura neighborhood, completely destroying it.
The regime forces also attacked another mosque in the district of al-Deira in the same village.
The Shia-populated Eastern Province has been the scene of peaceful demonstrations since February 2011. Protesters have been demanding reforms, freedom of expression, the release of political prisoners, and an end to economic and religious discrimination against the oil-rich region.
