PFLP's Leila Khaled to visit Gaza Tuesday

Dec. 3, 2012 1:33 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 4, 2012 2:34 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Leila Khaled, the iconic Palestinian resistance fighter and PFLP member, will visit the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, a party official said.

Senior PFLP leader Kayid al-Ghoul said Khaled will take part in anniversary celebrations for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestinian, and will be briefed on the damage caused by Israel's recent eight-day assault on the coastal enclave.

Khaled, born in Haifa but forced to flee to Lebanon in 1948, gained worldwide notoriety for her role in the PFLP's strategy of hijacking aircraft carriers in the late 1960's and 1970's.

She currently lives in Amman, Jordan.
