PFLP slams Syria's suspension from Arab League

Nov. 16, 2011 11:35 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 17, 2011 1:50 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The politburo of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine on Wednesday condemned the Arab League's decision to suspend Syria.

The Arab League suspended Syria on Saturday in protest at its violent crackdown on dissent and failure to implement an Arab peace initiative.

PFLP said in a statement that the suspension paved the way for intervention by NATO members, which it said would damage the chances of dialogue and reform.

Palestine should not support the Arab League's decision because it did not serve the Palestinian cause or Arab people, PFLP said.

"This decision might be used to benefit the Zionist and imperialist plans which aim to divide the area, dominate people and plunder its wealth," the statement added.
