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 organizing activities in support of the prisoners.

We confirm that all the Palestinian prisoners of conscience in Saudi Arabia have been lately denied access to visits and to all forms of communication with family members, under the pretext of "investigation with them". pic.twitter.com/6PnjAiixV9

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.
