Breaking: Hamas calls on Saudi Arabia to release senior figure over his worsening health condition
The Palestinian Hamas resistance movement has called on Saudi regime authorities to immediately release its high-ranking official Muhammad al-Khudari, whose health has been deteriorating over the nearly three years he has been in prison in Saudi Arabia.
According to reports, Moussa Mohammed Abu Marzouk, a member of Hamas political bureau, in a post published on his Twitter page on Wednesday, expressed serious concerns over further deterioration in the health of the 83-year-old Palestinian.
He asked Saudi officials to urgently free Khudari and his son, Hani, along with all other Palestinians being incarcerated in Saudi jails.
“Dr. Muhammad al-Khudari, 83, is in critical health condition. He is being held without charge, along with his son and other Palestinians. We call on Saudi authorities to release them immediately, taking into account their humanitarian situation,” Abu Marzouk tweeted.
Moreover, Hamas Spokesman Hazem Qassem said Khudari “suffers from serious health problems while being kept in detention in Saudi Arabia.”
He told the Arabic service of Turkey’s official Anadolu news agency that the high-ranking Hamas official is being detained without “any charge and irrespective of the fact that he has not committed any offense.”
“All that Khudari did was to support the Palestinian cause, and the legitimate public struggle against the Occupation (Zionist entity),” Qassem said.
The Hamas spokesman called on Saudi authorities to “immediately release Khudari and all other [Palestinian] detainees.”
