Palestinian parliament calls for Saudi to release Palestinian prisoners

Riyadh(ANN)-First Deputy Speaker of the Palestinian Parliament Ahmad Bahar yesterday called on Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz to release Palestinian prisoners held in the kingdom, Felesteen reported.

During a meeting with the families of the prisoners, Bahar said that the Palestinian prisoners in Saudi jails have not violated the country’s rules.

Abdul Majeed Al-Khodari, brother of Mohammad Al-Khodari who was detained in April, said the families of the prisoners had formed a popular body in order to start organising activities in support of the prisoners.

He said that this body aims to highlight the issue of the prisoners and spread awareness about them and their tragedy.

In September, the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas revealed that Saudi Arabia had arrested scores of Palestinians, including Al-Khodari, the official Hamas representative in the Kingdom, his son and others.

Rights groups revealed that Al-Khodari is suffering from serious illnesses and stated that the prisoners have been exposed to harsh treatment and torture inside the Saudi jails.

The rights groups called for the kingdom either to release them immediately or disclose the reasons for their detention
