PFLP-General Command: We'll Respond When Time is Right


Spokesman Ramez Mustapha of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, whose base in southern Lebanon was attacked by the Israel Air Force, Thursday night, said, Friday, "Our response will be at the appropriate place and time, and not the way the Zionist enemy wants." Ahmed Jibril's organization said it was surprised, claiming it was not involved in the Thursday-afternoon rocket attack on the western Galilee, which prompted the Israeli airstrike.

A spokesman for the Lebanese army said the attack created a five-meter-deep crater in the Nu'eimah site and that it suspected the Israeli navy. Channel 2 Television reported that the Lebanese army increased its troop strength in the area.
