The military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, an organization that orchestrated terrorist attacks that killed scores of Israelis over the years and has been classified by both the United States and the European Union as a terrorist entity, released on Tuesday a threatening video against the Jewish state and in particular its army.

The video depicts IDF vehicles moving along the security barrier between Israel and the Gaza Strip, and as one vehicle emerges a text appears in Arabic and in Hebrew on the screen saying: "In the line of fire."

The video also shows Palestinian snipers aiming their weapons at Israeli combat engineering units that operate in the area in order to ensure the safety of other military units as well as uncover terror tunnels being dug into Israeli territory with the intent of harming the country's population.

Joy Bernard translated this report.
"We can reach the crimes and the aggression of Israel against the Palestinian people," the video says. "The way of resistance is armed resistance, as long as the occupation sits on the land of Palestine."

The armed wing of the PFLP also used the video to reiterate that it planned to resist Israel (which imposes its military rule over Area C of the West Bank and some parts of Area B) forcefully. "The weapon of resistance is a holy weapon, one we will not accept seeing damaged, and it will remain [in the hands of] the resistance which doubles its efforts to prepare for the next confrontation."
