BDF Turns Fifty Years

Information Affairs Minister, Bahrain Institute for Political Development (BIPD) Board of Trustees’ Chairman, H.E Ali bin Mohammed Al-Romaihi, hailed the crucial role of Bahrain Defence Force (BDF) in defending national security and stability and protecting development achievements.

In a statement marking the 50th BDF anniversary, he described Bahrain Defence Force as an essential partner in maintaining Gulf and Arab national security, defending legitimacy and serving humanity. He congratulated His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the Supreme Commander, His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa and His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier and all the people of Bahrain on this milestone.

He extended deepest thanks and appreciation to the BDF Commander-in-chief Field Marshal Shaikh Khalifa bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa and all the BDF affiliates for their sacrifices in defending the homeland’s security, sovereignty and territorial integrity for all peoples to live in serenity and stave off regional and international threats.

He lauded the BDF landmark strides since its establishment five decades ago, at the wise and farsighted initiative of HM the King, hailing its military, technical and administrative readiness, combat spirit, competence and discipline and advanced weaponry.

He paid tribute to the wise leadership for its support and directives, hailing the Bahrain Defence Force as a source of national pride, fortified fortress, symbol of unity and national integrity as well as an active partner in the sustainable economic and social development march.

The minister lauded the BDF active participation and honorable stances in strengthening collective Gulf and Arab security, protecting regional and international security and stability. He hailed the BDF dedicated role as part of the Arabian Peninsula Shield during the war to liberate Kuwait as well as the Saudi-led Arab Alliance in support of legitimacy in Yemen and the Islamic Alliance for combating terrorism.

“The sacrifices of our brave soldiers will always remain engraved in all citizens’ hearts and memories, being a source of national pride”, he said, paying tribute to HM the King for dedicating the 17th of December as Bahraini Martyrs’ Day, as a token of gratitude for the affiliates of the BDF, the Ministry of Interior and the National Guard, who fell in the line of duty, sacrificing their lives for the sake of nation.

“The BDF sends a noble and renewed message, on this historic day to all citizens and the world”, he said, hailing HM the King’s directives to instill the values of citizenship, respect of national fundamentals and belonging to the homeland, self-sacrifice for the sake of the nation among advanced and civilized countries.

His Majesty King Hamad exchanged cables of congratulations with BDF Commander-in-chief Field Marshal Shaikh Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa  on the occasion. His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa and His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier, also exchanged cables of congratulations with BDF Commander-in-chief.
