Palestinians Fighting Against U.S.

Among the hundreds of non-Iraqis fighting against the United States forces in Iraq are Palestinian Arabs - and some of them have even given their lives in the campaign against the Americans. Hassan Jamal Suleiman, 18, who was killed on Dec. 11 in a suicide attack west of Baghdad, was the second Palestinian guerrilla from Lebanon's refugee camps to die fighting the Americans in Iraq. The first was Ibrahim Khalil, who was killed in battle against the Americans shortly after the latter invaded Iraq in March.

Associated Press reports that Suleiman belonged to the Palestinian terrorist group Ansar Allah.
