The Abu Ali Mustapha Brigades, the armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist group, is threatening to harm Knesset members based on intelligence information it has obtained.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the group said that one of its units which deals with electronic security has managed to obtain a database of all MKs, including residential addresses, e-mail addresses and other personal information.

"Our message on memorial day (the day in which PFLP leader Abu Ali Mustapha was eliminated -ed.), which is directed at the leaders of the criminal occupation, is that our response is still continuing and did not end after the fall of our leader Abu Ali Mustapha, who planted in our hearts the love for the homeland, the sacrifice, the struggle and not the bargaining. There is no place immune to the beatings of the forces of the struggle. We are behind you everywhere and in every arena," the statement said.

The PFLP is responsible for the assassination of Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze'evi in 2001. The organization's leader, Ahmed Saadat, and two other senior members are serving sentences in Israel for their involvement in the murder.

In recent years, the organization has carried out a number of serious terrorist attacks, including a massacre in a Jerusalem synagogue.
