Ayatollah Khamenei Condoles Passing of Palestinian Resistance Figure Ahmed Jibril

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei in a messages, has expressed his condolence over the demise of leading Palestinian figure Ahmed Jibril.

In a message released on Thursday, Ayatollah Khamenei described Jibril as an “indefatigable fighter” who spent all his life fighting for his usurped homeland and oppressed nation.

“I offer my condolences on the demise of the indefatigable fighter, Mr. Ahmed Jibril, to the Palestinian people and all the fighters and activists engaged in the fervent Palestinian struggle and all the elements of resistance in the West Asian region and to his [bereaved] relatives,” he noted.

The Leader also asked God to bestow abundant heavenly rewards on the deceased fighter and show him forgiveness.

Jibril, the head and founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC), died of an illness in Damascus on Wednesday, said his son, Bader Jibril.

Born in 1938, Jibril founded the PFLP-GC in 1968 after breaking away from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Known as Abu Jihad, he was one of the oldest and most prominent Palestinian military leaders and he believed in the “armed struggle to liberate Palestine.”

He was famous for his opposition to any Palestinian negotiations with the Israeli regime.

Jibril’s son Jihad was killed in 2002 in a Beirut attack, which the group blamed on Israel. Jihad was head of the PFLP-GC military wing at the time.
