Who is Muhammad Al-Khodari?

Muhammad al-Khudari, according to what his brother Abd al-Majid (70 years old) told “Anadolu Agency”, was born in 1938, graduated from Cairo University, from the Faculty of Medicine in 1962.

After graduation, he returned to the Gaza Strip and worked at Al-Shifa Medical Hospital for 9 months before leaving for Kuwait.

Upon his arrival in Kuwait, Al-Khodari worked for a private medical company, according to his brother, and then joined the Kuwaiti army to work there as a doctor.

After a while, he obtained a “fellowship” degree from the University of “Edinburgh” in Britain, in the specialty of ear, nose and throat.

After that, Al-Khudari continued his work in the Kuwaiti army, as head of the “ear, nose and throat” department, at the Military Hospital in Kuwait.

After the Palestinians left Kuwait in 1990 (due to the repercussions of the Iraqi invasion), Al-Khodari moved, according to his brother, to Amman.

His brother adds: “In 1992, al-Khudari moved to reside in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and at that time he worked as a representative of the“ Hamas ”movement, publicly and officially. And with the knowledge of the Saudi authorities.

However, he left this position about 10 years ago, according to Al-Khoudary.

Abdul Majid Al-Khodari considered his brother’s position as an ambassador, who “must have his respect in the country in which he resides”.

He said that Al-Khodari “participated in the interview that brought together the late King, Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, and the movement’s leader at the time, Ahmed Yassin, in 1998.

During the period of his representation of “Hamas” movement, Al-Khudari said that his brother was, with the knowledge of the Saudi authorities, collecting donations for the Palestinians, and he was not working underground.

He continued, “It is his duty to convey the image of suffering to the Prime Time Zone of Saudi Arabia, and therefore they used to collect donations for Palestine with the knowledge of the government.”

Al-Khodari was arrested at the dawn of April 4, 2019, in the city of Jeddah, by the Saudi State Security Investigation Service.

The Saudi “State Security” told Al-Khudari at the time that the agency wanted him in a small case for a short period of time, and that he would be returned to his home. However, the eighty-year-old, diagnosed with cancer, is still under arrest.

Later that day, the same apparatus also arrested Al-Khodari’s eldest son, Hani, an engineer and lecturer at Umm Al-Qura University in Makkah.

Al-Khoudary and his son were not the only ones who were arrested without charge, as the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor “based in Geneva” said that Saudi Arabia forcibly hides 60 Palestinians.
