Background: In Lebanon, the leader of the country's largest left-wing Moslem group Ibrahim Kleilat attacked the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty on Saturday (9 June).
SYNOPSIS: The group, made up largely of Sunni Moslems, is known as Al-Murabitoun, the Independent Nasserite Movement. The attack on the Egyptian-israeli peace treaty came on the twelfth anniversary of large demonstrations in Egypt, urging the country's former President, Gamal Nasser, to go back on his resignation, which followed Egypt's cease-fire with Israel after the 1967 war. The news conference, held in a Murabitoun centre, was given by the Movement's leader, Ibrahim Kleilat.
