Al Daih (Arabic: الديه‎) is a village on the north of Bahrain. It lies to the east of Budaiya, west of Al Manama. It is a predominantly Bahrani village. It was formerly known as Al Bida, Abu Al Zila, and now is called Al Daih, a Persian word meaning "small village".

History[edit]

2011–present uprising[edit]

Since the start of the Bahraini uprising, unrest became more common in Bahrani villages, including Al Daih. A man from the village called Ali Abdulhadi Mushaima was the first to die in the uprising after getting shot by security forces' birdshot in the back. Clashes between security forces and protesters continued throughout the uprising with riot police armed with tear gas and birdshot confronting protesters throwing Molotov cocktails.
