BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – The Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) have played an active role in the Syrian conflict as their troops are embedded with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and other pro-government militias.

Since the start of the conflict, the PLA has seen their numbers grow substantially as recruiting efforts were increased to meet the personnel demand.

Led by Major General Mohammad Tariq Al-Khadra of Safad, Upper Galilee, the Palestine Liberation Army has participated in several important battles across Syria, including the Daraa, East Ghouta, Yarmouk Camp, and Beit Jinn offensives.

The PLA’s forces in Syria are considered the largest branch of the Palestinian group and one of the last vestiges of the Arab nationalist endeavor to free Palestine.

During an interview with a Syrian Arab Army source in 2018, the officer told Al-Masdar that the PLA’s numbers are estimated to be between 6,500-8,000 soldiers.

In the video below that was released by the PLA’s media wing, the Palestinian forces can be seen training in an undisclosed location inside Syria.

The most disciplined and principled Palestinian liberation organization is the late great Dr. George Habash’s PFLP. The so-called Fatah and its disgraceful puppet Mahmoud Abbas have sold out the Palestinians to the Zionist criminal occupiers and US warmongers. The patriotic Palestinians should emulate Hezbollah model and create a strong, well trained fighting force that coordinates with the Axis of Resistance.

Ah, PFLP, well known for placing bombs into airliners!
They’re not practising discrimination, they even bombed Swissair flight SR-330, killing 47…
The Axis of Pestilence will end just like “Axis Powers” since history always repeat when you don’t learn from it. The term Axis was coined by Mussolini, BTW.

Sólo 6,500 – 8,000 soldados, se requiere mas para volver a su tierra para liberar Palestina de la opresión y genocidio Israelí.

What genocide? They proliferate like rabbits!
300k in Gaza, 1970; now they are 2 millions there!
Even worst : if you consider the full Israel, including Gaza and Judea-Samaria (west-bank) in 1918, there were barely only 15,000 Arabs living west of the Jordan river (Jordan was included in the Mandate for Palestine, BTW). Half weren’t even born here!
Now please explain me how in one century you end with 6.8 millions Arabs, including the 1.8 millions Arab-Israelis since there are no women wombs able to multiply a population by 453 within a century.
