  • Description

    A spokesman for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said in a press statement in Beirut, Lebanon, on Wednesday (5 February) that his organisation will be stepping up its military operations in the Israeli-occupied territories.

    Mr Bassam Abu Sherif, speaking for the Marxist organisation, said that "the P.F.L.P. affirms that armed struggle is the only way to liberate Palestine, the whole of Palestine."
    "The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine is escalating its operations in the occupied territories of Palestine," he said.

    Mr Sherif added that there will be no peace until a democratic society in which Jews and Arabs have equal rights, is established over the whole of Palestine.

    The P.F.L.P., led by Dr George Habash, is one of the radical splinter groups in the Arab commando movement which has rejected any settlement with Israel.

    Mr Sherif referred to "several operations" his group had carried out in Jerusalem and neighbouring areas.
