Conquest of al-Hasa was performed by the Saudi forces with support of the Ikhwan on 1913.[1] The Oasis of al-Hasa was conquered from an Ottoman garrison, who had controlled the area from 1871.[2]

Although Shi‘i religious community leaders negotiated a quick surrender and recognition of Saudi political authority in 1913 in exchange for leniency, the Shi‘a communities in al-Hasa and Qatif were subjected to harsh oversight and cruelty.[1]
