Abu Ali Mustafa

Abu Ali Mustafa
▪ 2002
Mustafa az-Zibri 
      Palestinian nationalist (b. 1938, Arabeh, Palestine—d. Aug. 27, 2001, Ram Allah, West Bank), was a cofounder and, from July 2000, secretary-general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a radical faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). He was born Mustafa az-Zibri and later took the nom de guerre Abu Ali Mustafa. As a young man he joined George Habash's Arab National Movement, and in 1967 he and Habash formed the Marxist-oriented PFLP, based in Damascus, Syria. The PFLP, which staunchly rejected PLO peace talks with Israel, was believed to have been responsible for several terrorist attacks and hijackings. Mustafa eventually acknowledged the Palestinian Authority, however, and in September 1999 he unexpectedly returned to the West Bank. He was killed in an Israeli rocket attack on his offices.
