PFLP mourns its founder, national and international leader Al-Hakim

The Central Committee of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine expresses its mourning to the Palestinian people, the Arab people and all free people of the world, for its founder and the leader of its march, Dr. George Habash, Al-Hakim, founder of the Arab Nationalist Movement and the PFLP.

With the martyrdom of the founder, the Palestinian people and the Arab nation have lost an icon and a symbol of its resistance, who was firm and committed throughout seven decades of struggle against the enemy of the Palestinian and Arab people, and in confrontation with the forces of oppression, hegemony and injustice.

A great leader has fallen, but his ideas, principles and vision will not, as he held to his principles with a courageous and truthful commitment in fighting imperialism and the defeatist forces. Despite all conditions and circumstances, Al-Hakim was always committed to the liberation of Palestine, all of Palestine, from the river to the sea. Palestine has lost today one of its greatest noble committed men. Glory to Al-Hakim!

We pledge to our people and to our great leader and the symbol of our struggle that we will continue to march and struggle on his path and with his method, with the courage and will of free people, until the total liberation of all Palestinian national soil.
