The Secretary General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command, Ahmad Jibril, died on Wednesday in Damascus at 83.
Sources close of the late leader mentioned that he died of sickness at one of hospitals in the Syrian capital.
Jibril founded the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command in 1968. He carried out several attacks on Zionist targets and administered two deals to swap prisoners with the Zionist entity in 1979 and 1985 according to which around 1200 Palestinians were released from the Israeli jails.
Jibril was one of Syria’s and Iran’s allies and fiercely opposed all the settlement agreements between the PLO ( Palestine Liberation Organization) and the Israeli enemy.
‘Israel’ classified Jibril as one of its arch foes and attempted to kidnap him several times.
