Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades – PFLP

The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades are the armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). They function in both the West Bank and Gaza.

It carried out car bomb attacks and suicide bombings against Israeli targets (including civilians) in Jerusalem and the West Bank during the Second Intifada. One of their notable operations was the assassination of Israeli minister of agriculture Rehavam Ze’evi in October 2001. This came after Israel assassinated the PFLP’s then-secretary general Abu Ali Mustafa.
