Canada-based PFLP senior leader Khaled Barakat spoke at an April 30, 2023 "Return and Liberation March" in Ottawa, Canada, calling upon his audience to salute terrorist organizations in Gaza. He said: "Salute the heroic forces of the Al-Qassam Brigades, Jihad Brigades, Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, and all of the Palestinian resistance factions." Barakat continued to call for the "unity of all fronts," including the "resistance" in Lebanon, Yemen, Syria, and Iraq. He led the crowd in chants of: "Long live the Intifada!" "Long live the Palestinian resistance!" Video of Barakat's speech was uploaded to the YouTube account of Masar Badil (Palestinian Alternative Revolutionary Path Movement). It should be noted that Abu Ali Mustafa is the armed wing of the PFLP, which was responsible for launching rockets against Israel and terrorist attacks, such as the murder of 17-year-old Rina Shnerb in 2019. Khaled Barakat is a Masar Badil coordinator, and he has been singled out as a leader of Samidoun, the foreign Branch of the PFLP, which was designated as a terrorist organization by Israel in 2021.
