The Palestinian National Council expelled PFLP-GC leader Admad Jibril on Tuesday for dragging Palestinians into the Syrian civil war, Ma'an News Agency reported.

Jibril's PFLP-GC fought alongside Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces, though many defected to join the opposition, rebel sources told Ma'an.

According to the sources, Jibril left the Yarmouk refugee before rebels took control of it on Monday.
