All the doors and gates were destroyed, the rooms were severely damaged, all electronic devices and computers were stolen or broken, and the private files of the society were stolen.
In this report issued Oct 2011 by the Isalmic Action Society (Amal) a documentation of all attacks on the political society, which is registered under the laws of the Ministry of Social Development (currently, human rights) in Bahrain since 2002.
