Palestinian Assembly

views updated


Palestinian movement created in January 1995 at the initiative of the leadership of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). Under the control of Bassam al-Shaqʾa, the Palestinian Assembly wanted to draw Palestinian opponents of the Oslo Accords to its cause. On 25 May 1995 a communiqué of the ten groups belonging to the Palestinian opposition front Alliance of Palestinian Forces (APF) launched an appeal to strengthen this new movement, so as to function as a framework for an opposition front in the Occupied Territories. After a few promising statements, this organization was not heard from again.
