  • Description

    A spokesman for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine General Command -- Abu Abbas -- gave a press conference in Beirut, Lebanon, on Friday (12 April) about the raid on the northern Israeli town of Kiryat Shmoneh, in which 18 Israelis and 3 guerrillas died.

    Abu Abbas said that the operation -- carried out by an Iraqi, Syrian and Palestinian -- was a symbol of Arab unity. He added that the PFLP General Command aims at the total liberation of Palestine through armed struggle and rejects any compromise solution. He said that any settlement coming out of the present Geneva peace talks was unacceptable, and he warned Yasser Arafat - head of the Palestine Liberation Movement -- that he should not give in to pressure to approve submissive solutions.

    Finally, he played a tape of the voice of one of the guerrillas explaining their motives for the attack.

    The following day, the Israelis launched raids against six Lebanese villages
