According to a source cited by Saraya News, some of the detainees have been transferred to court on various charges. Out of the initial 89 detainees, 73 have been released, while 174 out of 266 have also regained their freedom.

The source stated, "The remaining detainees will be released if their families provide guarantees, with the exception of those who can be proven to have incited riots, resisted authorities, or engaged in acts of sabotage."
The majority of detainees have been granted their freedom, with the exception of those involved in arson, assaulting security personnel, or inciting riots. These individuals were held for a week, and their first court session is scheduled for next Thursday.

On Tuesday, a source confirmed that individuals detained in connection with the protests held across various regions of the Kingdom, in a show of support for Gaza, will be released if their families provide guarantees.

However, it's essential to note that some of the detainees will not be eligible for these guarantees, as there is evidence of their involvement in inciting riots, resisting security personnel, and engaging in acts of sabotage.
