Hamas: Saudi detains one of ‘our senior leaders’

MEMO | September 9, 2019

Hamas on Monday said “one of its senior leaders” and his son have been in Saudi custody since April of this year, reports Anadolu Agency.

In a statement, the group said the Saudi security services arrested Mohammad al-Khoudary, who has been living in Saudi Arabia for three decades and described the arrest as a “reprehensible action”.

The statement mentioned that al-Khoudary was responsible for administering the relations with Saudi Arabia for over the past two decades and he got several leading positions in the movement.

“Hamas kept silent over the past five months of his arrest to allow for mediations efforts but these efforts have yet to bear fruit”, it said.

Euro-Mediterranean Monitor for Human Rights, a Geneva-based group, also said that the Saudi authorities detain around 60 Palestinians in its jails.

In a statement, the rights group called on Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz to order the immediate release of the detainees, especially those who are detained without specific indictments.

  1. I’ve heard that the Saudi Royal Family have Jewish bloodlines, but, when the Largest Arab country in the Middle East take Palestinians into custody, and presumably no charges have been laid(none actually mentioned anyway) You have to wonder what is going on. Saudi Arabia is also smashing its Arab neighbours(Yemen) as well.(using American made weapons and technology)And the USA likes to call itself “The World’s Policeman”.
    It’s a weird world we live in.
