Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine is a left-wing Palestinian organization, founded after the Six-Day War in 1967.

In 1968, one of the PFLP's earliest leaders, Ahmed Jibril, broke away to form the "Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command" (PFLP-GC). In 1968, the PFLP joined the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the main umbrella organization of the Palestinian national movement. The PFLP became the second-largest PLO faction, after Yasser Arafat's own al-Fatah.

In 1969 the Marxist-Leninist Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) split off from the PFLP.
