Palestinian-Syrian Terrorist Group Says Forming Units to Fight for the Golan
Both PFLP & PFLP-GC are terrorist organizations, why do news organizations usually omit that fact in the headline? (I added “terrorist” to this headline) You would think that would be the lede rather than something not mentioned until paragraph three.
Wiki on PFLP-GC
A militant Palestinian group in Damascus said it is forming combat units to try to recapture Israeli-occupied territory, in particular the Golan Heights, after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Hezbollah that they would support such operations.
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) said it was preparing for new operations after nearly 40 years of quiet on the Israel-Syria border.
The group, designated terrorists by the United States and others in the West, was most active in the 1970s and 80s but retains influence with Palestinians in Syria and Lebanon.
“The leadership of the PFLP-GC announces that it will form brigades to work on liberating all violated (Israeli-occupied) territories, first and foremost the occupied Golan,” it said in a statement late on Friday.
