  • Description

    In Beirut, Lebanon, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and the Palestinian Liberation Front (PLF) held a rally on Friday (13 April) aimed at condemning the Egypt-Israel peace treaty.

    SYNOPSIS: The meeting at the Arab University in Beirut, was heavily guarded with leaders from both the PFLP and the PLF present to address the rally.

    Mr. Naif Hawatmeh, leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine was one of the main speakers and condemned the Egypt-Israel peace treaty. And local schoolchildren sang Palestine Liberation songs.

    The Egyptian-Israeli treaty has been denounced in Lebanon as a conspiracy against the Palestinians.

    Since the signing of the peace treaty in Washington, hostility between Israel and Lebanon has increased in the border region and Palestinian commandos in Southern Lebanon have been put on full alert. Most of the Arab world opposes the Egypt-Israel peace treaty and intends to carry out political and economic boycotts against Egypt. The United State has also come under criticism for their role in the peace treaty and some American property has come under attack.

    Abu Al Bas, leader of the Palestinian Liberation Front also addressed the rally and spoke of planned retaliation in response to Israeli air raids. He described the increased Palestinian Commando activities since the signing of the Egypt-Israel pact.

    The Palestinian groups have led several rallies recently to encourage popular opposition to the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel.
