  • Description

    A mass Palestinian rally at Yarmuk Camp, just outside Damascus, on Friday (May 16) marked the anniversary of the occupation of Palestine by the Israelis in May 1948.

    The rally was organised by the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Executive Bureau member Aby Leila, in the principal speech, attacked not only the Israelis and the United States, but the Iraqis and the right-wing Lebanese Falangists as well.

    On the same day, Palestinian commandos were claiming responsibility for an explosion at an ammunition plant near Tel Aviv, saying that hundreds of Israelis had been killed in the blast, timed to mark the 27th anniversary of Israel's foundation. The Israelis, however, said the explosion resulted from accidental causes.
