Saudi court reduces jail term for Hamas representative to 3 years
Mohammad al-Khodari sentenced by Saudi court in August to 15 years in prison

By Laith al-Joneidi
AMMAN, Jordan (AA) – A Saudi appeals court on Tuesday reduced a 15-year jail term against former Hamas representative Mohammad al-Khodari to three years, according to a Jordanian NGO.


"The court has begun to look into the sentences issued against 60 Jordanians and Palestinians working on Saudi lands on charges of supporting the Palestinian resistance," the Jordanian Detainees Committee in Saudi Arabia said in a statement.


In August, a Saudi criminal court sentenced al-Khodari to 15 years in prison, alongside with 60 Palestinians and Jordanians detained since February 2019.


The committee said the court cut al-Khodari’s sentence to six years, of which three years were suspended.


There was no comment from Hamas group on the verdict.


Khader Mashaikh, head of the Jordanian committee, described the court verdict as a “positive sign”.


Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Mashaikh said al-Khodari is expected to be released by Saudi authorities next month after serving three years in prison.
