Hamas calls Saudi Arabia to release Palestinian prisoners in its jails

Days of Palestine - Gaza

Hamas Movement has renewed its demand for Saudi Arabia to release the Palestinian detainees in its prisons, led by its former representative to Riyadh, Muhammad Al-Khudari, and his son Hani, stressing that there is no justification for their continued detention.

The movement’s spokesman, Fawzi Barhoum, said in a written statement today, Thursday that the basic principle is to honor them for what they have provided in service to the Kingdom and its people, not to arrest and torture them, especially as they have not committed any offense or crime.
