PFLP-GC Leader Ahmad Jibril: I Want to See Iranian Soldiers Fighting in the Galilee; We Shall March into Jordan on Our Way to All-Out War with Israel, Whether King Abdullah Likes It or Not

PFLP-GC Secretary-General Ahmad Jibril said in a recent TV interview that he wanted to see Iranian soldiers participating in the war against Israel: "We want to see the revolutionary fighters from Khorasan in the Galilee." Speaking on Hizbullah's Mayadeen TV on February 17, Jibril said that the war against Israel would be an "all-out war," and that "we shall enter Jordan, whether King Abdullah likes it or not." "This war against the enemy will be waged from Rosh HaNikra to Aqaba," he said.

 

Ahmad Jibril: "With regard to the Islamic Republic (of Iran), we do not want only to ask them for money and weapons, and then say 'thanks.' We want to see the Muslim people of Iran devote all their efforts in the war to the liberation [of Palestine]. We want to see the revolutionary fighters from Khorasan in the Galilee.

 

[...]

"We want to create an axis of resistance, consisting of Damascus – Baghdad is getting there, Allah willing – Tehran, Hizbullah, and the noble Palestinians who still believe in the continuation of the struggle for the liberation of Palestine from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River. Afterwards, we shall enter Jordan, whether King Abdullah likes it or not. You understand what I mean? The war with this enemy will be an all-out war.

 

[...]

 

"I don't like it when people say: 'We want you Palestinians to do this, that, and the other, and whatever you need – we will support you.' I don't like it. What I want to hear from [IRGC Qods Force commander Qassem Soleimani] and others is what their role will be in the liberation of Palestine."

 

Interviewer: "Do you want to see the IRGC marching toward the borders? Do you want them to fight alongside the fighters of the PFLP?"

 

Ahmad Jibril: "First of all, we should try to thwart the conspiracy that is being hatched against Syria these days. We can save Syria from the plans to divide and tear it apart. After all, we have a war ahead of us: in the Golan, in South Lebanon, in the Galilee..."

 

Interviewer: "Are you preparing for this?"

 

Ahmad Jibril: "What?"

 

Interviewer: "Are you preparing for this, Abu Jihad? Are you telling us that you are contemplating this?"

 

Ahmad Jibril: "The Israelis know this. I'm not revealing any secrets."

 

Interviewer: "They know that you are planning it?"

 

Ahmad Jibril: "They know all about it. Hizbullah is getting ready for it, and so are we.

 

[...]

 

"This war will be determined from the north – from Syria and the Golan – and then from the East Bank toward the West Bank. Allah willing, this war against the enemy will be waged from Rosh HaNikra to Aqaba."
