Lebanese Armed Revolutionary Faction (LARF)

LEBANESE ARMED REVOLUTIONARY FACTION (LARF)

Lebanese armed group, created in 1979 by Georges Ibraham Abdallah, after the breakup of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine–Special Operations (PFLP–SO), of WadiD Haddad. The hard core of this group was made up of approximately thirty members from five important families from the north of Lebanon. Backed by Syria, the LARF wanted to free Lebanon from all foreign presence. This group was responsible for many attacks, some of which were carried out in the West against Israeli citizens or offices. The LARF ceased to exist in 1986. Abdallah himself has been in prison in France since 1984. He was convicted in 1987 for the killing of an Israeli diplomat in 1982.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
