A Saudi man, who spent almost seven years in an Israeli jail, has returned home. The man said that he got lost in the Sinai desert in Egypt and was picked up by Israeli forces.
Abdulrahman Al-Atwi arrived in the city of Riyadh on Thursday from the United States, where he had been deported off to, a few months ago by the Israeli forces.
Al-Atwi’s legal counsel, Kateb al-Shimmari has stated that his client had been deported to the United States as there are no diplomatic links between the Muslims Kingdom and Israel.
Musa stated that the Saudi authorities have done their best to facilitate the safe return of his brother, who has entered the Kingdom without any questioning or briefing at the airport.
Several Western human rights groups have tried over the ages to expose the brutal methods used by the Israeli defense forces and the unfair verdicts given out to Muslim Arabs, whether they are men or women, however, this has not caused the state of Israel to show any leniency towards the Muslim or the Arab world.
The Saudi authorities deserve huge appreciation to what they have accomplished in the case of Al-Atwi.
The United States has paid a key part as a negotiator between the two sides which has ultimately allowed the release of the man, which would have previously been impossible.
Many other men, women, and children are still imprisoned in Israeli prisons, and their conditions and whereabouts are unknown.
