Israel Arrests Palestinian Lawmaker Over Terrorism

Khalida Jarrar is a Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PLFP). She has also been personally deemed a significant danger to security and is under orders not to leave the town of Jericho. Today (Thursday) the IDF arrested Jarrar while she was in the town of Al-Bireh, near Ramallah.

The PLFP, started by Dr. George Habash, was a terrorist organization which specialized in plane hijackings. Their most infamous attack was when they hijacked an Air France plane in 1976 and diverted the flight to Entebbe, Uganda. The passengers were later rescued in a daring IDF raid.
