Saudi regime prevents funerals and other mourning practices: Arabian Peninsula opposition
The most recent massacre only reflects the web of lies Mohammed bin Salman has woven in an attempt to whitewash his image.
A leader of the Arabian Peninsula Opposition bloc, Hamza Al-Shakhouri, brother of martyr Muhammad Alawi Al-Shakhouri who was executed Saturday by the Saudi regime, said that the Saudi forces are preventing funerals and other mourning practices for the martyrs.
In a phone call, Al-Shakhouri told Al Mayadeen that "the Saudi authorities do not reveal the truth, and what they announce cannot be trusted."
"The Saudi authorities charged my brother, the martyr, with keeping a picture of Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah," he continued, emphasizing that "the Saudi death sentences are not based on clear charges, but rather on arbitrary ones."

The Saudi authorities executed on Saturday 81 citizens and residents, claiming that they were "involved in terrorist cases inside the Kingdom."
The charges represent an alarming increase in Saudi Arabia's use of the death penalty.
The families had not been informed of the executions in advance and were shocked to learn about them.

On the Saudi authorities’ execution, the opposition in the Arabian Peninsula has lately stated that the Saudi regime committed a massacre against dozens of detainees, including 41 from the peace protest movement in Al-Ahsa and Qatif, under the false accusation of committing "terrorist" acts.
The statement added that the Saudi regime pursues its methodology of committing more crimes against innocent people, exploiting the so-called war on terror and making use of the current international situation, where the world is preoccupied with what is happening in Ukraine, to carry out a horrific massacre against a group of young people who only exercised their legitimate right of expressing their right to freedom.
It also considered that the web of lies that Mohammed bin Salman has woven in an attempt to whitewash his image before the foreign public opinion and present himself as a man of moderation and tolerance has failed badly today with his crime. This reveals that he is nothing but a "sadistic killer who takes pleasure in killing innocents and rejoices upon seeing the pain of their loved ones."
It is worth mentioning that Saudi Arabia has one of the world's highest execution rates, and has repeatedly carried out death sentences by beheading.
