Mohammed Abdel-Al, spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committees pledged to avenge the targeted assassination of its operative, Mahmoud Arkan. "We are ready to retaliate, and the retaliation will be tough and painful," he said. The PRC is made up of renegades from other militant groups and has rejected the cease-fire negotiated by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas last February. Abdel-Al said that in principle, the PRC is committed to the truce but reserves the right to retaliate for Israeli attacks.
