Palestinian faction hails Damascus' permission to plan attacks against Israel

A Damascus-based Palestinian faction hailed on Saturday the Syrian government's decision to allow Palestinian groups to wage attacks against Israel from its occupied Golan Heights.

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) welcomed Damascus' recent hint that it would open the Golan front for the Palestinian groups to launch attacks against Israel in retaliation for the Israeli airstrikes on three Syrian military sites last week, according to a statement faxed to Xinhua.

The PFLP-GC stressed that it is ready to launch military operations against the "Zionist enemy," adding that giving an access to the Golan front required a popular pressure to open all other Arab fronts, especially the Jordanian front.
