Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command

Left-wing Palestinian organization. Founded in 1968, when Ahmed Jibril[?], one of the PFLP's earliest leaders, broke away to form his own organization. The new group initially declared that its focus would be military, not political.

Although member of the Palestine Liberation Organization from the beginning, the PFLP-GC has always opposed Yasser Arafat, and has not participated in the peace process.
