Palestinian Islamic Resistance movement Hamas stated that there is “absolutely no justification” for the arrest and imprisonment of Dr. Muhammad al-Khudari, his son and his Palestinian brothers in Saudi Arabia.
Hamas stressed that Riyadh “should honour them for what they have provided in service to the Kingdom and its people, not to arrest and torture them, especially since they have not committed any offense or crime.”
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said in a statement that “the time has come to release all of them, specifically now that the Ummah lives the days of the blessed month of Ramadan.”
For nearly two years, Saudi Arabia has arrested and imprisoned dozens of Palestinians in its prisons on charges of aiding Gaza. The Leader of the Yemeni Revolution, Sayyid Abdul-Malik Badr Al-Din Al-Houthi, also made an offer to the Saudi regime to exchange Palestinian prisoners for its captive pilots in Yemen, but this offer was rejected by Riyadh.
Sayyid al-Houthi denounced Saudi Arabia’s provision of free services to the Zionist enemy in the humiliation of the Palestinian people, as well as the arrest of their representatives on its lands, “at a time when it provides all facilities to this occupying enemy and supports steps of normalisation with it.”
