The deputy head of the political bureau of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) Saleh Al-Arouri said that the Saudi regime is trying Palestinians who are being arbitrarily arrested for their charitable work in favor of the Israeli besieged Gaza Strip.
Al-Arouri stated in TV statements that the Palestinian detainees in Saudi prisons would, unfortunately, be brought before the courts on charges of charitable work for Gaza.
Unfortunately, he added, there is no development in the efforts to release the arbitrarily detained Palestinians in the Saudi prisons.
Last month, Hamas revealed that the Saudi regime imposed an unjustified break with it.
In statements published by the official website of the movement, a member of Hamas’ political bureau, Khalil al-Hayya, denied any hostilities between the movement and the Kingdom.
He said that Hamas does not announce any enmity to any Arab or Islamic country, these are all our people, our pride, and our back, and we ask them to support our people and their steadfastness and stand by our side, so they were, and so we want them today.
Al Hayya added, unfortunately, there is a state of apathy, and perhaps the boycott imposed by the brothers in Saudi Arabia, this is their business, but we are concerned with a relationship with Saudi Arabia based on embracing and supporting the Palestinian cause and based on maintaining relations with all countries.
And Hayya clarified that Hamas does not accept that it is required to establish a relationship with one state in exchange for boycotting the other, which the Palestinian people have also not accepted throughout history.
He stressed that the movement is concerned with the existence of a relationship with the Kingdom, based on embracing the issue, and not to call for a boycott of any other country, about Iran.
Hayya mentioned that Hamas’s political relations with countries are based on balance and openness, to mobilize support and seek to restore the issue as an issue of a people under occupation that needs support.
He continued by saying that Hamas has been keen since its inception to establish political relations with all the countries that allowed it, and in the way and in the way that it wishes, and that the movement enjoys distinguished relations with many countries, officially and popularly.
Hamas revealed the arrest of its representative in the Kingdom, Muhammad Saleh Al-Khudari, for several months, amid a state of secrecy about his circumstances and the circumstances of his arrest.
Hamas said that Al-Khudari’s arrest came within the framework of a campaign that affected many of the Palestinian people residing in the Kingdom and that he was not interceded by either his 81-year-old nor his health condition, nor his militant position in which he was known for the great services he provided to the Palestinian people and his national cause at home and abroad.
